SURREY — A Surrey man was killed early Friday morning in a car crash in Cloverdale.
The victim, age 36, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Surrey RCMP Sergeant Alanna Dunlop said his car hit a median, went into the oncoming lane, struck a lamp standard and then hit a tree.
“Speed is a factor in this crash,” she said. “It’s tragic.”
The black car was heading westbound in the 18000-block of Fraser Highway on a curve down a hill, Dunlop noted. It happened at 12:45 a.m.
The man’s name has not been released. His was Surrey’s second traffic fatality in 2017.
