A male pedestrian is dead after a hit-and-run in Surrey overnight.

Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a pedestrian hit in the 13400-block of 105 Avenue around 1:45 a.m. on Saturday (Jan. 27). The pedestrian was found several blocks away, with severe injuries. He died at the scene.

Witnesses described seeing a red Ford Mustang hit a male pedestrian and “leave the scene without stopping” to help.

“The preliminary investigation indicates the pedestrian was struck in the roadway north on University Drive and 104 Avenue,” reads an RCMP release Sat. (Jan. 27).

According to a Black Press freelancer at the scene the male was dragged for several blocks along University Drive to the 13200 block of 109 Ave where the victim was found deceased.

Police say officers were able to quickly find the vehicle in the 13200 block of King George Boulevard, along with three occupants, who were taken into custody then released pending a court appearance.

Alcohol and speed have not been ruled out as contributing factors in the crash, Surrey RCMP say. The investigation is ongoing.

The 13200-block of 102 Avenue is still closed at 1:30 p.m. Saturday as the Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team investigates. Police say the road will open later in the afternoon and asks motorists to avoid the area.
