ON Thursday, at approximately 12:08 a.m., Surrey RCMP were called to 72 Avenue, between 130 Street and 132 Street, for a report of a single-vehicle collision. A black Jaguar sedan was travelling westbound on 72 Avenue when it lost control and struck the centre median.
The adult male driver of the Jaguar was taken to a local area hospital in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
