Ferrari crashes in South Surrey, takes out pole

Police say icy road to blame for one-vehicle crash in South Surrey Thursday.

Power lines were downed and traffic lights temporarily knocked out after a one-car crash in South Surrey Thursday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., police say the driver of a south-bound Ferrari California hit an icy patch of road on 148 Street, near 30 Avenue, “and basically just lost control and went into a pole.”

The vehicle suffered front-end damage but no injuries were reported, according to Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann.

Speed was not considered to be a factor, he added.

Bernie Rosenblatt, who was driving immediately behind the Ferrari when it “spun out,” said he and another driver helped the lone occupant out of the car following the crash.

“He was a 40-ish man, shaken-up but apparently uninjured,” he said. “Multiple  air bags went off. He was shaky, but able to stand up by himself.”

Rosenblatt, proprietor of King George Nissan, said he believes the high-end, late-model car was “demolished” after “shearing off a hydro pole and bouncing off a couple of trees” in the accident.

“It was pretty spectacular,” he said.
