Surrey RCMP believe one of the vehicles involved in a dramatic deadly crash on Saturday night (Nov. 10) was stolen.
The green 1996 Honda accord was heading east on 68 Avenue at about 10:30 p.m. when it ran a red light at 128 Street and struck a 2011 Chevy Equinox.
The stolen Honda spun and slammed into a pole, splitting the car in two, with the front end traveling nearly a block down the road before coming to rest in a yard. The two occupants – a 27-year-old male and a 49-year-old female – were thrown from the car. They are not believed to have been wearing seat belts.
The man suffered massive head trauma and died at the scene. The woman remains in serious condition in hospital with multiple injuries.
The occupants of the Chevy – a 55-year-old man and a female passenger – sustained minor injuries.
Police don’t yet know if drugs or alcohol were involved but believe speed was a factor in the crash. There have been no charges laid and the investigation is ongoing.
