A senior is in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle while crossing Whalley Boulevard at 102 Avenue Sunday evening.

The 79-year-old woman was initially thought to be okay, but her condition worsened, and was rushed to hospital where she underwent surgery for her head injury.

The vehicle was heading east on 102 Avenue and turned onto Whalley Boulevard at about 6:30 when it struck the woman.

It's not clear wether or not she was crossing with a signal to walk.

Conditions were dark and wet and the woman was wearing dark clothing.

The driver of the vehicle was interviewed and cooperative. Drugs and alcohol were not factors in the accident.

Police say the event serves as a reminder for all motorists to watch for pedestrians and for people traveling on foot to wear high-visibility clothing.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
