Surrey RCMP say two people are in custody following a multi-vehicle crash involving a stolen vehicle.
At approximately 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday (June 4), police say a stolen vehicle collided with a police car and three other vehicles in “what police believe was an attempt to flee.”
“The incident unfolded as a Surrey RCMP Frontline Officer was responding to an unrelated file,” according to a release. “The officer had his emergency lights and siren activated and was travelling south on King George Blvd. As the officer approached the intersection at 96th Avenue, a stolen vehicle ran a red light and collided with vehicles in traffic on eastbound 96th Avenue.”
“The officer was unaware of the stolen vehicle until the incident unfolded,” police say.
Surrey RCMP say a man and woman ran from the stolen vehicle, but have both been arrested and remain in police custody.
No serious injuries were reported.
