A recent Vancouver Sun article notes:

A total of 129 pedestrians were injured in 12 of the Lower Mainland’s major shopping malls over a five-year period, with about one-quarter of them hurt at Burnaby’s Metropolis at Metrotown, according to the Insurance Corp. of B.C. Those statistics were provided this week after a toddler was killed and his mother injured at the Meadowtown Shopping Centre parking lot in Pitt Meadows Friday.

The accident served as a tragic reminder to pedestrians – as the Christmas shopping season kicks into gear – of the dangers of walking in busy parking areas where cars are constantly pulling in and backing out.

ICBC provided accident statistics on 12 shopping malls: Metrotown, Brentwood, Coquitlam Centre, Richmond Centre, Yaohan Centre in Richmond, Park Royal, Oakridge, Meadowtown, Willowbrook in Langley, Sevenoaks in Abbotsford, Guildford in Surrey, and Morgan Crossing, also in Surrey. The numbers showed that there were a total of 16,128 crashes at the 12 malls and 1,084 injured victims, including 129 pedestrians. However, the numbers at individual malls were sharply different, with Metrotown – which bills itself as the largest shopping centre in B.C. – showing the highest number of crashes (3,590), the highest number of injured victims (231) and the highest number of pedestrians hurt (32).

A Metrotown official could not be reached for comment.

Park Royal in West Vancouver came second in the ICBC survey, with 2,490 crashes and 182 injuries including 17 pedestrians.

Fatalities for the 12 malls were not provided, although police data shows 15 pedestrians were killed in B.C. parking lots between 2008 and 2012
