Police investigating fatal Surrey and Delta crashes

Two traffic crashes claimed three lives on Sunday. Police are calling for witnesses

The scene of a head-on collision that killed two people on King George Highway and 81st Avenue in Surrey on Sunday morning (Nov. 20).

SURREY — Surrey firefighter Ryan Hammerer died on his way to work at the Fleetwood firehall on Sunday morning when his jeep crashed into a semi-trailer parked at the side of Highway 10.

“We don’t know the circumstances of the accident,” Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis said. “He was a valued member; he was with us more or less for 15 years and well-liked by everybody and he’s going to be missed. Our hearts and prayers go to his family.”

Hammerer was 44.

Delta Police are asking for witnesses to the crash to contact Constable Aaron Hill, the lead investigator, at 604-946-4411.

Meanwhile, the Surrey RCMP has not released the names of the two motorists killed Sunday in a head-on traffic crash involving a car and pick-up truck in the 8100-block of King George Boulevard. Both drivers, the sole occupants of their vehicles, died at the scene.

Police ask witnesses to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, quoting file number 2016-161598.
