RCMP call for witnesses to crash that injured children

 

The Surrey RCMP are looking for witnesses to a crash that injured a woman and two children near Brookswood.

On July 9 at 2:30 p.m., two cars collided at 184th and 40th Avenue in Surrey.

Police believe that a Ford pickup was heading north on 184th and collided with an eastbound SUV on 40th.

A nine-year-old girl in the SUV was seriously injured and was airlifted to hospital. She is expected to live.

The 29-year-old woman driving the SUV and a four-year-old boy were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The 35-year-old man behind the wheel of the pickup, an off-duty RCMP officer, received minor injuries and was treated at the scene of the crash.

Police are now looking for a witness who was riding a Harley-Davidson type motorcycle behind the pickup just before the crash.

The motorcyclist apparently stopped to help and may have spoken to one of the drivers, but left the scene before police arrived.

Because one of the drivers was a police officer, the Independent Investigations Office has been called in to look at the officer’s actions. The IIO investigates any incident involving injuries or death and a police officer in B.C.

The Surrey RCMP are looking into the actions of the other driver.

Anyone with further information who has not already spoken to police, including the Harley rider, is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
