SURREY — The suspect vehicle in a fatal hit-and-run in Newton may be a 2010 or 2011 grey Honda CRV, Surrey RCMP said Wednesday afternoon.

They’re appealing for public assistance in locating the vehicle and driver involved in a pedestrian hit-and-run Monday morning (March 14) that left a 57-year-old Surrey woman dead.

The accident happened on King George Boulevard near 83rd Avenue at around 6:45 a.m. Monday, and the boulevard was closed in both directions.

The Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) is leading the investigation, along with assistance from the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS).

Investigators say they’ve surveyed the scene and gathered a significant amount of evidence, including the possible make and model of vehicle.

The vehicle involved in the crash would have notable damage to the front end, police say.

“We are appealing to anyone who may have information about a vehicle that matches this description to contact our Criminal Collision Investigation Team,” said Corp. Scotty Schumann.

“If you are the driver involved, or know who this person is, we ask you to do the right thing and contact our investigators immediately.”

Police have not yet identified the dead woman.

Investigators continue to review all available video footage in the area and pursue a number of other investigative avenues to identify the driver responsible, Schumann added.

Anyone with more information about this collision is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
