Police investigating this May 26 crash at 176 Street and 16 Avenue are looking for anyone who saw the vehicles prior to impact.

Second vehicle seized in suspected street-racing investigation

Police say both drivers in South Surrey incident 'unco-operative'

Surrey RCMP are appealing for additional witnesses in connection with a crash May 26 in South Surrey that trapped four youth in a vehicle wedged under a semi trailer.

Monday afternoon, Cpl. Scotty Schumann confirmed that a driver who had reportedly fled the scene of the suspected street-racing incident has now been identified as a 17-year-old Surrey boy, however, neither of the drivers involved are co-operating with the investigation.

The crash occurred around 11:40 p.m. at the intersection of 176 Street and 16 Avenue, when a grey 1999 Honda Accord westbound on 16 Avenue slammed into the side of the southbound semi.

Witnesses at the time told police that the Honda – driven by a 16-year-old girl – and one other vehicle had appeared to be racing just before the impact. The second vehicle narrowly missed the truck and continued westbound.

Schumann noted that the driver of the second car – a brown 1999 Toyota Camry that police tracked to a Langley address two days after the crash – did not come forward on his own.

He said that in addition to locating and seizing the Camry, investigators have gathered evidence that suggests alcohol, in addition to speed, played a role in the crash.

Now, they’re asking for anyone who may have seen the two vehicles in the lead-up to the crash – it’s believed the drivers travelled south on 192 Street from Highway 10, then west on 16th from 192nd – between 11:20-11:45 p.m., to call the detachment’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-8477.
