Driver pursued following South Surrey crash

Police dog team called out after late-night collision at 32 Avenue and 172 Street.

A police dog team was called to the intersection of 32 Avenue and 172 Street late Wednesday, after one person fled the scene of a two-vehicle collision.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the crash occurred just after 10 p.m. Oct. 5.

Exactly what caused the crash remains under investigation, however, it resulted in a dark-coloured SUV coming to rest with its front end in a ditch at the intersection’s southeast corner.

Two people, including a 22-year-old South Surrey resident, were taken to hospital with minor injuries, Schumann said.

A police dog team was called after the alleged driver of the SUV fled the scene on foot, he said.

They “apprehended a person nearby who was suspected to have been in the SUV,” Schumann said.

Schumann declined to share further details, citing the integrity of the investigation.
