A 38-year-old man has died after being hit by a delivery truck at a grocery store in Abbotsford.
The tragic accident happened shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday when the victim was hit by a large truck in a Safeway loading bay.
It’s not currently known whether the victim was entering or leaving the store at the time of the collision.
Constable Ian MacDonald says the man was pronounced dead on the scene.
“We believe there was a pedestrian that was in the loading bay at the grocery store in the 32500 block on South Fraser Way. He was there at around 7 p.m. and as the grocery store truck driver was backing in a load, it would appear that there was a collision between that large truck and the pedestrian.”
Abbotsford police are still on the scene.
