UPDATE: Police believe speed a factor in deadly weekend crash

A multiple car crash at 152nd Street and 88th Avenue early Sunday morning left two people dead and another three in hospital.

Two people are dead after a crash at a busy Surrey intersection early Sunday morning.

SURREY — Police believe speed may have been a factor in a deadly crash over the weekend that took two lives.

One person died at the scene, another later in hospital.

A third person remains in critical condition as of Wednesday, police say, and two others suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The multi-vehicle crash happened at 12:30 a.m. Sunday at 152nd Street and 88th Avenue.

Police say a Toyota 4-Runner was travelling westbound on 88th Avenue and was making a left turn onto 152nd Street when it was hit on the passenger side by another vehicle, driving westbound.

After hitting the 4-Runner that vehicle then hit a third, according to Surrey RCMP.

While police initially said the vehicle that hit the Toyota was a Hyundai, they now say it was in fact a Nissan Altima.

It is the driver of the Nissan that remains in critical condition.

This was the eighth fatal traffic crash of the year.

In the wake of the accident, friends and family of the two victims visited the crash scene where they prayed and left behind flowers and notes. Two large bouquets had cards that read: “We love you and will always miss you!”

Monday afternoon, a group of mourners who said they knew the two dead men through the local Laotian community arrived at the memorial to pray for the dead men. They said the two men who died were middle-aged males originally from Laos.

A neighbourhood resident, Teresa Gougeon, didn’t know the victims but said she worries about drivers speeding in the neighbourhood.

“I feel that 88th Avenue is the new freeway,” Gougeon said. “It’s a shame. I wish people would slow down.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 604-599-0502.
