A 59-year-old pedestrian was killed near Five Corners in Chilliwack early Sunday morning.
The Vancouver man was hit by a southbound vehicle at the 45800 block of Yale Road just before 1 a.m., according to Chilliwack RCMP.
Police say the pedestrian "stumbled" into the southbound lane where he was struck. He sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to Chilliwack General Hospital where he died from his injuries.
RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen said the driver stayed at the scene, and charges against the driver are not being considered.
"He is being very co-operative with the police, and alcohol and drugs are not a factor," vanNieuwenhuizen told the Times.
The B.C. Coroners Service will likely take over the investigation into what caused the pedestrian to stumble onto the road.
The man's name has not been released.
