Surrey RCMP are hoping to speak to the driver of this car

Witness to serious December crash in Surrey sought

Man was first to arrive at scene when driver slammed into tree in Newton, police believe.

Surrey RCMP would like to speak to a man they believe was the first person to arrive at the scene of a serious crash in Surrey in early December.

The collision occurred on Dec. 6 at about 8:10 p.m. near 134 Street and 66A Avenue. Police were advised a Ford Edge travelling southbound on 134th had sideswiped a northbound Ford pickup truck. The Edge then went off the road and into a tree.

The 40-year-old male driver of the Edge was badly injured and remains in critical, but stable, condition in hospital.

After reviewing video surveillance and 911 calls, police are hoping to identify a potential witness who was driving behind the Edge prior to the incident.

It’s believed the witness was a man and was the first to arrive at the scene and spoke to the driver of the pickup truck. They think he may be the same person seen driving a light-coloured sedan captured on video surveillance (in above photo).

Anyone with further information about the Dec. 6 crash, including the witness himself, is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) at 604-599-0502, quoting file # 2014-176731.

Surrey RCMP remind people that if they witness a collision, remain at the scene to speak to an officer.
