UPDATE: Confrontation at Surrey school leads to hit-and-run

Surrey RCMP say two young men were taken to hospital after incident at LA Matheson Secondary

SURREY — Two young men were taken to hospital after a confrontation led to a hit-and-run at LA Matheson Secondary Thursday night.

Shortly after 5 p.m., Surrey RCMP say they responded to reports of a hit-and-run in the school parking lot at9484 122nd Street in Surrey.

Police say the crash involved a pick-up truck and two men, both 19 years old.

Surveillance footage was found at the scene that shows several young men approaching the truck, which led to a confrontation. Police say two men were hit when the truck tried to take off.

One man had minor injuries and the other had significant, but non-life threatening, injuries.

Police say the boy behind the wheel of the truck was 17, and he turned himself into police shortly after the incident.

According to police, the driver didn’t know the victims.

The truck has been seized by police for “forensic and mechanical examinations.”

“At this time no charges have been laid,” says Corporal Scotty Schumann. “It appears a minor confrontation escalated into a serious incident. The general public was not at risk. If you witnessed this event and haven’t spoken to police, investigators would like to speak to you.”

Although this is not technically a school-related incident, the Surrey School District has sent a letter home to parents advising of this incident as it occurred on school property.

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