ABBOTSFORD Police announced on Tuesday that 23-year-old Anureet Dosanjh of Surrey has now been charged with six counts of impaired operation causing bodily harm and three counts of dangerous operation causing bodily harm in connection to the May 24 crash between two cars in Abbotsford.
“Throughout the past year, investigators from the AbbyPD [Abbotsford Police Department] General Investigation Section (GIS) have tirelessly followed the evidence advancing this file to the charge-approval stage,” police said.
“From the onset, the General Investigation Section was grateful for the assistance from the public, which included witnesses and businesses in the area, allowing this investigation to advance. The investigative team remains dedicated to holding those responsible accountable,” said Sgt. Chris Brown-John.
No further information will be released as this matter is now before the courts, police said.
According to last year’s press release, on May 24, 2021, at 8:13 p.m., Abbotsford Emergency Services was called to Whatcom Road and North Parallel Road for a serious crash involving a Volkswagen Jetta and a Honda Civic.
The Honda Civic was traveling westbound on North Parallel at a high rate of speed when it veered into the oncoming lane and collided head on with the Volkswagen Jetta.
The Honda was occupied by the driver and a passenger, and the Volkswagen was occupied by the driver, a passenger and two small children. They all sustained injuries and were taken to hospital by BC Ambulance Service.
Abbotsford Police’s Media Relations Officer, Constable Paul Walker, told The VOICE that although everyone was out of hospital, each of the front passengers in the two cars “have life-altering injuries that will require ongoing medical care” and that the “quality of life for each of them has forever changed.”
