Another pedestrian struck by a car in Abbotsford



A pedestrian was struck in Abbotsford on Wednesday night and was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The collision occurred at about 9:30 p.m. at George Ferguson Way and Ware Street.

A flat-deck pickup was turning south on Ware Street and hit a man in the marked crosswalk.

The driver remained on scene and was cooperative with police.

“It (the collision) is a good reminder for citizens in our community to take some extra caution and be aware of the intersections and crosswalks that we have in our community,” said Const. Paul Walker at the scene.

Abbotsford has had a series of pedestrian collisions this year including two fatalities – Shaminder Brar, 34, whose body was found on Riverside Road on Feb. 18, and an 86-year-old woman who was struck in a crosswalk at McKenzie and King roads on Feb. 28 and died two days later.

On Monday of this week, a 10-year-old girl was struck by a car while she was using a crosswalk with her mom on South Fraser Way in front of city hall.

The girl was airlifted to hospital, and her injuries later turned out to be not as serious as first thought.
