Surrey RCMP is looking for the driver of a Tesla who drove by the scene of a fatal collision and is also urging the driver who fled the scene of the collision to come forward.
On July 29, 2023, at approximately 12:38 a.m., the Surrey RCMP responded to a report of a pedestrian hit and run collision in the 8200-block of 128 Street. The pedestrian later succumbed to his injuries in hospital. (media release 2023-07-31)
Moments after the collision took place, a white Tesla drove southbound past the collision scene on 128 Street (see attached image).
There is potential that the Tesla’s dash camera recorded footage of the collision or captured the suspect vehicle/driver that fled the scene. The Tesla driver may be unaware they drove by a fatal collision.
Police are continuing their work to identify the suspect vehicle and driver, and are hoping the driver will do what’s right and come forward to speak with investigators.
There is a family grieving the loss of their loved one and they deserve answers, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer Corporal Vanessa Munn.
Police are urging the driver involved in the collision to contact them; although you can’t change what happened, you can do the right thing and help bring some closure to the family.
Police are requesting anyone who was there that night or who may have dash camera footage of the collision or suspect vehicle to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
