UPDATE: Surrey teen dies following multi-vehicle crash in Cloverdale

Surrey woman in custody and police are ‘looking strongly’ at impaired driving and speeding as factors

CLOVERDALE — A 17-year-old boy has died following a multi-vehicle crash earlier this week in Cloverdale. Police have not released the victim’s name.

Emergency responders had to remove the roof of a vehicle and use the Jaws of Life to rescue three people after a serious crash in Cloverdale on Wednesday night (May 3).

One vehicle was involved in two separate crashes, police said.

A caller told police a black Cadillac had been involved in a collision around 9 p.m. with a vehicle near 64th Avenue and 168th Street.

“She fled the scene,” said Surrey RCMP Corporal Scotty Schumann.

Police say the Cadillac then hit the back of a grey Honda Prelude on 64th Avenue just west of 176th Street (Highway 15), pushing the vehicle into the Shell gas station.

Though police said the Honda then struck the fuel pump, there was no visible damage at the station.

Three people inside the Honda were trapped, and though they were freed by members of Surrey Fire Department, all were hurt.

The driver of the Honda was a 17-year-old boy, police say.

The frontseat passenger, a 17-year-old girl, was taken to hospital with serious injuries but they’re not considered to be life-threatening.

Another young person riding in the back seat of the Prelude sustained minor injuries.

Allison Keating heard the crash.

“It was absolutely horrific,” she said. “I was there with my daughter, coming home from Splitz gymnastics about 30 to 45 seconds after it happened. We heard the impact but didn’t see it.

“So terrifying,” added Keating. “I’m praying for everyone who was injured.”

Police say the woman driving the Cadillac was a 22-year-old Surrey resident. She was detained at the scene of the second crash and sustained minor injuries.

She remains in custody.

Schumann said police are “looking strongly” at impaired driving and speeding as being factors.

The same intersection has seen numerous serious collisions over the years, including another fatal crash in 2010.

Surrey RCMP are asking anyone who witnessed either collision to call them at 604-599-0502.
