Wrong way on hwy, injured

A man is seriously injured in a collision after driving the  wrong way on Highway 17

On Tuesday afternoon, shortly after 3:00 p.m., Surrey RCMP observed a Hyundai Accent driving southbound in the northbound lanes of Highway 17 from 104 Avenue.

The vehicle struck a transport truck which was merging on to Highway 17 from the Highway 1 off ramp. The vehicle then continued to drive into oncoming traffic as it entered the Highway 1 off-ramp and collided with a Toyota Camry before coming to a stop.

The drivers of the Hyundai and the Toyota were both transported to the hospital with injuries. The driver of the Hyundai sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the transport truck was uninjured.

The Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team has taken over the investigation, which is still in its early stages, as investigators continue to look into all possible contributing factors.

Investigators are asking anyone who was a witness to this occurrence who has not yet spoken to police, or anyone with dash cam video, to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
