Police say the other vehicle, a grey Camaro, was travelling westbound in the fast lane of Nordel Way when the Mustang, which was passing the Camaro, lost control.
The passenger in the Mustang was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Both occupants were in their late 20s.
Nordel Way was shut down in both directions between 120 Street and 88 Avenue, remaining closed throughout the morning as police investigated.
The man was a passenger in a Mustang that collided with a Camaro near Nordel Way and 120th Street just after 1:00 a.m. before slamming into a hydro pole.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or what led to it, or has dashcam video, is asked to contact Surrey RCMP.
Mounties say they were called to the crash around 1:15 a.m. Sunday after a Camaro and a Mustang collided along on Nordell Way, just east of 120 Street.

The driver of the Mustang received serious but non-life threatening injuries and two men in the Camaro were not seriously injured.
Police say it was raining heavily at the time of the crash, but they didn't say if that was a factor in the cause of the collision.
