Man dead after two-vehicle collision in Surrey, police say
Surrey RCMP were called to Nordel Way just east of 120 Street around 1:15 a.m. for reports of a two-vehicle collision, which sent a black Mustang into a hydro pole.

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.

The driver of the Mustang is in hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries, while the two men who were riding in the Camaro have minor injuries.

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.

Surrey RCMP said in a release that the incident occurred when a black Ford Mustang passed a grey Chevrolet Camaro that was travelling west in the fast lane on Nordel Way. According to police, the two vehicles collided, and the Mustang lost control, slamming sideways into a hydro pole.

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.

The roads were wet at the time of the crash after a brief thunderstorm rolled through the Metro Vancouver region Saturday overnight. Police said it was raining heavily at the time of the incident.
