17-year-old girl seriously hurt after BMW crashes into pole in Surrey

Police seek witnesses after crash in Newton, in the 6300-block of 128th Street

Surrey RCMP say a 17-year-old girl suffered “serious life-altering injuries” when a white BMW SUV drove off the road and hit a utility pole early Friday morning.

Police say it happened around 1:17 a.m. on July 12, in the 6300-block of 128th Street.

Surrey RCMP Corporal Elenore Sturko told the Now-Leader that two people were in the vehicle. She said a 20-year-old man who was driving the vehicle was also treated but since been released.

As of 6 a.m., road closures remained along 128th Street between 62nd to 64th Avenues.

“It is requested that the public avoid the area,” a Surrey RCMP release states.

The crash also knocked out power to 900 homes in the area but as of 8 a.m., BC Hydro reported only six customers remained affected.

Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team is investigating with assistance from the Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstruction Services (ICARS).

Police say the investigation into the collision is in its early stages.

Investigators ask witnesses who saw the collision, or who observed the vehicle prior to the collision, to contact the Surrey RCMP. Police are also seeking any available dash-cam video.

Anyone with more information who has not yet spoken to police, is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, to remain anonymous at 1-800-222-TIPS or solvecrime.ca.
