Charges expected after dramatic accident

Police say a driver fled the scene of an accident before rolling his truck on Thursday night in Guildford

A man is facing charges after an accident and dramatic rollover on Thursday night.

On Feb. 25, at about 9:30 p.m., a truck struck a parked vehicle at 104 Avenue and 157 Street, and continued on its way.

The truck then rolled onto its roof in the 10600-block of 154 Street.

A man in the passenger side of the truck was seriously injured and was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Police say the driver fled the scene and was captured by RCMP some distance away.

Impairment is believed to be a major factor in the accident, police say.

The alleged driver is from Calgary, and the passenger is a Surrey man.

Charge recommendation will take some time as accident reconstruction is a lengthy process.

Police say they will likely be looking at failing to remain at the scene of an accident against the alleged driver.
