Two people are dead following a rash of road collisions in South Surrey since Friday.
A 77-year-old man from South Surrey died at the scene of a crash at the intersection of 168 Street and 20 Avenue at approximately 5:50 p.m. Monday night.
The deceased was one of the drivers in a two-car collision that sent the other driver, a 32 year-old White Rock woman, to hospital with serious injuries. She has since been listed in stable condition.
Meanwhile, Surrey RCMP say a pedestrian, a resident of Cloverdale struck in a crosswalk at the 5400-block of 192 Street, at 7:40 a.m., April 1, succumbed to her injuries on Sunday.
Just 10 minutes earlier, a motorcyclist collided with the rear of a dump truck at 7:30 a.m. in the 15800-block of 64 Avenue. As of Peace Arch News press time Tuesday, the motorcyclist was listed in serious condition, police said.
Cpl. Scotty Schumann said it appears that in the motorcycle crash, a third car, which had become stuck on a median at the scene of the accident, was ‘probably’ a contributing factor, “whether people were distracted by the car, or trying to avoid it.”
All three incidents are being investigated by the Mounties’ Criminal Collision Investigation Team and Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service, with help from the Traffic Enforcement Unit.
Anyone with information on any of the incidents is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca
