Surrey RCMP has concluded the investigation into a 2015 hit and run investigation with charges now being sworn against a 27 year old Surrey man.
On April 6, 2015 at approximately 5:45pm, a police officer was conducting a traffic stop in the 12600 block of 92nd Avenue when he heard a noise. The officer observed a newer silver car driving away eastbound on 92nd Avenue and a person lying on the road.
The officer attempted to stop the fleeing vehicle however it failed to stop and was last seen travelling north bound on 128th Street through the intersection at 96th Avenue. Emergency personnel attended and located an 85 year old victim with serious injuries. The victim is recovering from the collision and is reported to be in stable condition.
The Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) led the investigation with assistance from the Integrated Collision and Reconstruction Service (ICARS). A thorough investigation was presented to Crown Counsel who approved charges.
Aman Sanghera, 27 years old, of Surrey, is now charged with Fail to stop at an accident causing bodily harm and Dangerous driving. Sanghera was arrested on November 3rd, appeared in court, and has subsequently been released pending his next court date.
“Hard work by investigators and intersection cameras helped to lead investigators to Sanghera who is alleged to have been the driver,” says Corporal Scotty Schumann.
