A man found lying at the side of the road in South Surrey Thursday morning was rushed to hospital with serious head and neck injuries.
But while the victim told police he had been hit by a vehicle, it remains unclear exactly how the man was injured.
The 49-year-old was discovered at 6:45 a.m. Sept. 6 in the 2400-block of 152 Street, by a Surrey RCMP officer who was patrolling in the area.
Police say the victim was conscious, with lacerations to his face, lying on the road with his feet on the sidewalk.
Rushed to hospital, he remains in serious condition.
Officers with the detachment’s traffic unit spent hours at the scene, cordoning off a half-block of the thoroughfare’s southbound lanes and sidewalk with orange cones and police tape.
They found no evidence on the roadway to suggest that a vehicle had been involved.
Area surveillance video obtained by police also did not clarify what had happened. Investigators are now trying to determine if a vehicle was involved, or if the injuries resulted from a bad fall off of the curb.
Anyone with information on the victim or how he may have been injured is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP detachment at 604-599-0502.
