White Rock police are searching for the driver of an SUV that fled the scene of a rear-end collision at Marine Drive and Stayte Road Monday night.

Police, fire and ambulance crews were called to the intersection just after 8 p.m. Dec. 19. The hit-and-run left a 21-year-old White Rock man with minor injuries.

Firefighters were alerted just after a Toyota Tercel southbound on Stayte was rear-ended by an SUV.

Force of the impact pushed the vehicle, a Toyota Tercel, across Marine Drive, fire Chief Phil Lemire told Peace Arch News Tuesday morning.

“The car did incur some heavy damage,” he said, noting firefighters’ involvement was limited to providing medical assistance to the injured driver until paramedics arrived.

Const. Chantal Sears told PAN the suspect vehicle was identified by two witnesses, and that police located it parked at the side of a South Surrey road “not too far” from the crash scene.

A description of the suspect driver was not available.

Investigation is ongoing and anyone with information that could help police is asked to call Const. Guneet Pannu at 778-593-3600.
