Two flights from Surrey police, two rollovers

Separate Sunday incidents involving fleeing drivers end similarly.



Two separate crashes in Surrey Sunday resulted in rollovers when the drivers failed to stop for police.

The first took place at about 1 a.m. Jan. 18 after a Surrey RCMP officer attempted to pull over a vehicle bearing a stolen licence plate. The silver Kia kept going, running a red light, hitting another vehicle and losing control.

The Kia rolled over, crashing down an embankment and through a chain link fence near 104 Avenue and University Drive.

The male driver got out of the SUV and fled on foot, only to be arrested a short distance away. Charges of dangerous operation of a vehicle, flight from police and possession of stolen property are being recommended.

A second, unrelated crash (see video below) took place Sunday evening after a reported fight outside the Wings restaurant at 72 Avenue and King George Boulevard.

When police arrived, four people who were believed to be involved in the incident got in a car and fled the area. When a traffic patrol officer in the area attempted to pull them over, the truck sped away, hitting a curb moments later and rolling over near 68 Street and 135A Avenue.

All four occupants of the truck tried to flee on foot, but were apprehended. The male driver is facing a charge of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. Police are determining whether alcohol was a factor in that incident.
