Teen charged after dramatic crash with Surrey mower

Though both vehicles flipped, both drivers have non-life threatening injuries.

Police say a BMW driven by a 17-year-old rear ended a City of Surrey tractor lawnmower on Thursday (Aug. 29) afternoon.



A 17-year-old Surrey man has been charged with speeding following a crash with a tractor lawnmower that halted traffic on 152 Street Thursday afternoon.

The crash took place around 3 p.m. when a 2012 BMW driving northbound near 62 Avenue rear ended a City of Surrey John Deere tractor that had an industrial-size lawnmower attached.

Surrey RCMP said witnesses reported that the BMW, driven by the teen, was seen speeding up the hill in the left-hand lane and hit the tractor from behind after cresting the hill. Both vehicles flipped over and debris scattered the roadway in front of Sullivan Hall.

According to police, both the teen and the 53-year-old man driving the mower were taken to Surrey Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
