File # 2017-97266
On July 15th, 2017, at approximately 3:20pm, Surrey RCMP officers came across a badly damaged Toyota in the intersection of 72nd Avenue and 132nd Street with two persons inside. It was obvious to the officers that a high speed collision had occurred, which was confirmed by witnesses at the scene. The witnesses also advised that the other vehicle involved, a grey Dodge, had fled westbound on 72nd Avenue at a high rate of speed. With the assistance of witnesses, the suspect vehicle was located by police and the driver was taken into custody. Alcohol and speed are believed to be contributing factors in the collision.
The male driver of the Toyota was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The female passenger, in her 90's, was deceased at the scene. No further information on the occupants of the Toyota is being released at this time, as notification of the next of Kin is pending.
The investigation into this collision is ongoing and the intersection of 72nd Avenue and 132nd Street will remain closed for some time.
Anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or witnessed how the grey Dodge was driving either prior to or after the collision, is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or go to www.solvecrime.ca.
