“The occupants of the Challenger fled the collision scene on foot. The driver of the Tesla has been transported to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries,” it said.

Not long afterwards, on 152 Street on 69 Avenue another collision occurred between two vehicles at about 2:20 a.m.

Occupants of the Range Rover, which likely rear-ended the Mistubishi Lancer, also fled on foot, according to police. The driver of the Mistubishi is experiencing life-threatening injuries due to the collision, while a passenger had “minor injuries.”

Later in the day, the driver of the Range Rover turned himself in and was arrested for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm and failure to remain after an accident causing bodily harm, according to a Surrey RCMP release.

The driver has been released pending charge approval.

Any witnesses to the collisions or individuals with dash camera footage from the areas are asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, quoting file number 2024-44669 for the 132 Street incident and 2024-44678 for the 152 Street incident.
