SURREY — Police are trying to determine the circumstances of a crash after an SUV hit a 17-year-old boy who was walking in Clayton.

Surrey RCMP Sergeant Alanna Dunlop said police cannot yet say if it was a hit-and-run. The victim, a Surrey resident, was found at the side of the road by a passing motorist roughly two hours after he was  struck and seriously injured by a brown 2004 Nissan Pathfinder in the 19400-block of Fraser Highway.

The motorist who found him took him to hospital.

Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann said the pedestrian “is still dealing with injuries however is recovering.”

“The driver of the Pathfinder has been identified and is speaking to police,” he added. “The investigators are still compiling all the evidence so it is too early to speculate on what the charges are going to be, if any, at this point.”

The collision happened on Sept. 19, some time between 3:50 a.m. and 4:10 a.m. Schumann said the Pathfinder had been heading west on Fraser Highway after leaving the 20300-block of Fraser Highway in Langley.

“Investigators would like to talk to anyone who may have witnessed this collision or anyone who may have seen the Pathfinder driving prior to the collision.

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) at 604-599-0502.
