SUV driver causes multiple hit-and-runs

Surrey Mounties are looking for witnesses to a serious crash in the Clayton Heights area west of Langley.

On Jan. 27, just before 9 p.m., a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV was heading west on Fraser Highway just east of 176th Street, when it rear-ended a Mercury Grant Marquis.

The Hyndai driver did not stay at the scene of the crash, said Cpl. Bert Paquet of the Surrey RCMP.

Instead, the driver kept going west all the way to the 15200 block of Fraser. There, the driver of the SUV tried to pass between two other vehicles, and rear-ended a Toyota Camry.

The SUV then drove to the 14500 block of Fraser and rear-ended a Saturn Vue. The impact spun the Saturn into oncoming traffic, where it was hit by an eastbound Toyota Tacoma. The Hyundai finally stopped when it lost control and veered into a ditch on the north side of the highway, said Paquet.

The 53-year-old man at the wheel of the Saturn, and his 10-year-old passenger, were both seriously injured, and were taken to hospital with possible spinal injuries.

The 26-year-old woman driving the Toyota Tacoma suffered a broken arm and wrist.

Meanwhile, the 50-year-old driver of the Hyundai received only minor injuries.

Drivers and passengers in the Mercury and Camry were not seriously hurt.

Alcohol and speed may have contributed to the repeated crashes, Paquet said.

Police are now seeking more witnesses to the string of crashes. Anyone who has further information for police can call the Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team at 604-599-0502 and ask to speak to file number 2015-13251.
