An 88-year-old man is dead after his scooter was struck by an SUV in Tsawwassen Friday afternoon.

Delta police said the man was crossing an unmarked intersection at 59th Street and 9th Avenue shortly after noon when he was struck.

He’d managed to pass three of four lanes before the crash, which destroyed his scooter on impact and left a pile of debris on the road.

Police said the SUV driver was distraught but remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.

It was raining at the time but police are still probing all possible factors in the collision.

The victim's name has not been released.
