Surrey Mounties still need help to solve a pair of fairly recent hit-and-run crashes that seriously injured three people in Surrey.
Two 17-year-old Surrey boys were badly injured on Jan. 5th when a dark-coloured pickup truck hit their Mazda 3 and took off.
One suffered a collapsed lung and the other a broken leg.
The hit-and-run crash, which happened at 138th Street and 92nd Avenue, at about 7:20 p.m., sent the Mazda spinning into a retaining wall.
The pickup was a newer model and would have had front-end damage.
Meantime, a 49-year old Surrey man is still in hospital following a hit-and-run crash on Sept. 30, 2012.
"He's still listed in serious condition," Cpl. Bert Paquet said Wednesday.
Jagdev Toor, a volunteer at the Dashmesh Darbar Sikh temple in Newton, was cleaning the back entrance of the temple with a leaf blower near 86th Avenue and 130th Street when a burgundy or maroon coloured vehicle struck him down and took off. A passing motorist found Toor at the side of the road shortly after 8 p.m. that night, suffering from serious head injuries.
Surrey Mounties don't have much of a description of the vehicle but say it would have had significant front-end fender and windshield damage.
Police ask anyone with information on either of these hit-and-runs to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
