Two critically injured when another vehicle crashes into Surrey bus shelter

SURREY — For the second time in two days, a vehicle has crashed into a pedestrian waiting at a bus shelter in Surrey.
In the latest case, an out-of-control white Chevrolet Corvette struck a man waiting at a transit stop at King George Boulevard and 96th Avenue around 6:15 p.m. Thursday. The vehicle drove straight through the bus shelter and came to a stop a short distance away.
The driver of the Corvette then fled the scene on foot, according to Surrey RCMP, leaving an injured passenger in the vehicle.
Both the pedestrian and the car’s passenger were rushed to hospital in critical condition, according to BC Emergency Health Services.
A witness to the crash followed the driver as he ran to a nearby taxi, and called police. Officers stopped the taxi at 88th Avenue and King George Boulevard, and arrested the suspected driver.
Although the cause of the crash is still under investigation, alcohol is believed to be a factor. Photos from the scene show that the shelter was virtually demolished in the collision, as was the front end of the Corvette.
The crash follows a fatal collision Wednesday morning at 156 Street and Fraser Highway. A 22-year-old man was waiting for the bus when he was struck and killed by a black Jeep that mounted the curb while trying to turn left onto Fraser Highway.
The driver of the Jeep, a 17-year-old Surrey woman, sustained minor injuries in the crash.
