A 33-year-old male who was struck by a TransLink bus has been declared as “neurologically deceased.”

The incident took place over a week ago on June 11, at approximately 5:45 pm, on Hastings Street and Carleton Avenue.

At the time, Burnaby RCMP say they received a report that two males were involved in an altercation near the intersection.

The 33-year-old entered the roadway and was struck by a bus. He was taken to the hospital shortly after.

Police say two men, one of which was allegedly involved in the altercation, were arrested. They were both released shortly after with no charges against them.

It was also confirmed that the TransLink driver would not be under investigation.

On Thursday, June 20, the BC Coroners Service confirmed that the victim had been declared as “neurologically deceased.” He remains at the Vancouver General Hospital on life support.

The Coroners Service will now investigate how, where, when, and by what means he came to his death.
