02 Décembre 2017

A nine-year-old girl has died after being hit by a transit bus in the Fraser Valley this morning.

The child was struck at a crosswalk at the intersection of South Fraser Way and Hill-Tout Street around 8:20 a.m.

The girl died in hospital shortly after arrival.

Abbotsford police say when emergency crews arrived, they located a seriously injured nine-year-old girl, who was transported to hospital with critical injuries.

Abbotsford Police Department Major Crime Unit detectives, collision reconstructionists, patrol division officers and B.C. Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement investigators are all now investigating.

In HD-28, 147 people were given ballots for the wrong House District, while only 82 votes separate the two candidates. Loupassi, a lawyer, has represented the district since 2009 and had twice conceded his loss, according to Adams.

Sgt. Judy Bird of Abbotsford police says it's too early to say how fast the bus was travelling.

"Our hearts and thoughts are with her family and friends", BC Transit spokesperson Jonathon Dyck said in a release. "Our thoughts are also with the driver and other witnesses... including passengers on the bus".

The incident remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859- 5225, to text APD at 222973 (abbypd) or to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
