Two-vehicle crash leads to argument in South Surrey

One person arrested, investigation ongoing

One person was arrested following a two-vehicle collision at 24 Avenue and Croydon Drive Friday afternoon that caused heavy damage to one vehicle, and delays for westbound travellers.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Elenore Sturko said police were alerted to a crash between a Hyundai and a taxi at 2:15 p.m.

According to the caller, an argument ensued and one driver left the scene. The driver then pulled over a short distance west, at another intersection, Sturko said.

At 24 Avenue and 156 Street, a white cross-over type vehicle could be seen angled in the curbside westbound lane of 24 Avenue, with significant front-end damage. Westbound traffic was backed up past 160 Street.

Monday, Const. Richard Wright said alcohol is suspected as a factor in the collision. One person was arrested and released pending further investigation, he added.
