News Release
Child hit and killed in East Vancouver - 10/08/19

On 10/8/2019 at 08:32am Vancouver Fire, Police, and CCSO Deputies responded to the intersection of NE 167th Avenue and NE 9th Street for the report of a bicyclist hit by a vehicle in the intersection.  Upon arrival, it was determined that the bicyclist, a 10 year-old male, had been killed as a result of the collision.  The driver, a male adult, was uninjured and remained on-scene to assist investigators.  The scene was turned over to CCSO Traffic Unit Detectives.

Scene evidence as well as driver and witness statements indicated that the truck was traveling eastbound on NE 9th Street and the bicyclist was traveling northbound on NE 167th Avenue, riding in the roadway.  At the four-way intersection, the bicyclist rode directly into the path of the eastbound truck and was hit.

The bicyclist was wearing a helmet.  The driver was identified as James ELIEISAR, age 45.  Eliesiar is a Vancouver resident.  It was learned that the bicyclist lived very close to the collision.

Further investigation will be conducted to determine proximate causes of the collision.  The intersection is in a residential neighborhood, with a posted 25mph speed limit.  The intersection is controlled by stop signs two ways, for north and southbound traffic.  The truck's travel path was not controlled by a stop sign.
