Pedestrian killed on Highway 1 near Hope

Westbound traffic has been rerouted on Highway 1 near Hope after a pedestrian was struck and killed Friday.

Highway 1 westbound is currently shut down in Hope as RCMP investigate the death of a pedestrian.

The man was struck by a semi truck Friday morning just west of exit 168 at about 6:30 a.m. Police said they received a call of a pedestrian in the eastbound lanes before the man was struck on the other side of the highway.

“We don’t believe speed or road conditions were a factor and we’re just asking if anybody who may have seen the pedestrian and haven’t spoken to police to contact Fraser Valley Traffic Services,” said Cpl. Holly Marks, acting spokesperson for Lower Mainland District Regional Police Service.

Westbound traffic is being rerouted along Flood Hope Road to exit 165. The highway is expected to reopen by early afternoon.

The name and age of the victim is not being released at this time, pending notification of family.

The Lower Mainland District Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS) are on scene investigating.

Witnesses can contact Const. G. Parr with Fraser Valley Traffic Services at 604-702-4039.
