Surrey RCMP say someone suffered “serious life-altering injuries” when a white BMW SUV drove off the road and hit a utility pole early Friday morning.

Police say it happened around 1:17 a.m. on July 12, in the 6300-block of 128th Street.

As of 6 a.m., road closures remained along 128th Street between 62nd to 64th Avenues.

“It is requested that the public avoid the area,” a Surrey RCMP release states.

Police say the investigation into the collision is in its early stages.

Investigators ask witnesses who saw the collision, or who observed the vehicle prior to the collision, to contact the Surrey RCMP. Police are also seeking any available dash-cam video.

Anyone with more information who has not yet spoken to police, is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or CrimeStoppers if they wish to remain anonymous.
