Surrey woman killed in alleged drunk driving accident

A 22-year-old woman is dead after she was struck by a woman who police believe was drunk.

At just after 10 p.m. Tuesday, the Surrey woman was heading back from the Cloverdale Athletic Park, where she plays and coaches softball.

She was driving her red BMW westbound on 64 Avenue, negotiating a turn onto 152 Street.

Just then, a 34-year-old woman from Surrey drove her white Ford Econoline van northbound through a red light.

Witnesses at the scene told police the woman ran from her van into a nearby wooded area. Police located the woman "showing signs of intoxication from alcohol," said RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger.

She is facing charges of impaired driving causing death.

No names are being released and both women were alone in their vehicles.

Grainger called it "another senseless example of a seeming impaired accident causing death."

The investigation continues.
