Hope man killed near Ruby Creek

Man ran in front of heavily loaded transport truck

A man from Hope was killed early Tuesday morning, when he ran in front of a loaded transport truck on Lougheed Highway near Ruby Creek.

RCMP said the man was struck by a fully-loaded 2010 Kenworth pulling two trailer loads of lumber, traveling westbound from Quesnel. The driver of that truck attempted to evade the man, but was unable to avoid hitting him.

Police have ruled out weather and road conditions as contributors to the incident, which happened around 12:45 a.m.

The Fraser Valley Traffic Services, the Office of the Provincial Coroner and the Lower Mainland District Collision and Reconstruction Services are

continuing their investigation.

Anyone who witnessed this collision and has not spoken to the police, are asked to contact the lead investigator Constable Roddie Cairns of the Lower Mainland District Fraser Valley Traffic Services Office at 604-702-4039.

The deceased man’s name has not been released, pending permission from his family. Ruby Creek is between Agassiz and Hope.
