BMW SUV drives into tree and catches fire in Surrey

SURREY RCMP are investigating a single vehicle collision which occurred in the early morning hours on Thursday (March 28) in South Surrey.

At approximately 4:15 a.m., officers responded to a report of a single vehicle collision in the area of 32nd Avenue and 137A Street. A BMW SUV drove into a tree and caught on fire. The driver, a 15-year-old male, and passenger, a 16-year-old male, both from Surrey, were pulled from the vehicle by witnesses. The driver suffered serious life-threatening injuries and the passenger had minor injuries. Both were transported to hospital.

Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) has taken conduct and continues to advance the investigation along with frontline investigators and the Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstruction Services (ICARS).

The investigation into the collision is in its early stages, however, police believe speed may have been a contributing factor. Investigators are asking to speak with witnesses who observed the BMW driving before the collision or have dash-cam video.
