Police cruiser crash closes part of Surrey’s King George Boulevard

Collision with Mustang had intersection closed in all directions at 104th Avenue Wednesday night

A crash between a black Mustang and a police cruiser had traffic blocked in all directions at 104th Avenue and King George Boulevard Wednesday night.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. and closures in the area were in effect for several hours.

A Black Press freelancer at the scene said it appeared the RCMP vehicle crashed into the car while its sirens were lit, on route to an emergency call.

Surrey RCMP Corporal Elenore Stuko said the officer was “responding to a call for service travelling south on King George Boulevard” when “in the intersection at 104th Avenue the police vehicle collided with an eastbound vehicle.”

Police say the driver of the Mustang was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

“The officer did not report any injuries,” noted Sturko, “but was taken to hospital out of an abundance of caution.”

Footage from the scene shows damage to the rear of the Mustang and the front of the police vehicle.

Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service attended to process the scene.

More to come.
