Counsellors will be on hand to offer support at a Surrey, B.C., high school this morning after one teen was killed and two others injured when they were struck by a motorcycle.

Police say the teens were crossing 128 Street near 68 Avenue when they were struck on Wednesday morning.

Amarpreet Sivia, 16, was killed in the collision. The two other girls, whose names have not been released, and the motorcyclist were all severely injured.

Officials say all three teenagers were students at nearby Princess Margaret Secondary School.

Students like Inderpreet Lail say the road is dangerous because there aren't enough crosswalks for students trying to get to local restaurants.

“We only get a certain amount of time for lunch,” Lail said.

“There is like 30 to 45 minutes only and no one is going to take the longer way to get food if you want it for lunch and stuff."

In 2010, officials at Princess Margaret Secondary asked the City of Surrey for a crosswalk in that area but the request was deemed unnecessary after a traffic review.
