Vintage car crunched in hit and run

Police are seeking an SUV that was allegedly involved in Surrey crash in early July.

Surrey RCMP are looking for the public’s help in finding a dark-coloured SUV that was involved in a crash with a vintage car in Surrey earlier this month.

On July 4 at about 7 p.m., police were called to a report of a collision at the intersection of 120 Street and 76A Avenue. There, they saw a fully-restored 1967 Ford Fairlane with its front driver’s side badly damaged.

The driver of the vintage car, police learned, was the 25-year-old son of the owner and had taken the car out for the day.

As he was travelling north on 120 Street, approaching 76A Avenue on a green light, he collided with an SUV. Witnesses said the SUV had gone through a stop sign at the intersection and after the crash, fled north on 120 Street.

The larger car is described as a dark blue or black 1999-2005 Chevy Tahoe or Suburban with dark tinted windows. Police expect it will have severe damage to the driver’s side rear quarter panel.

Police put out the call for help locating the vehicle on July 17.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS to remain anonymous.
