Surrey Mounties are looking for a dark-coloured pick-up truck that smashed into another vehicle on the weekend and took off.

At about 7:20 p.m. on Saturday, a grey Mazda 3 was heading eastbound on 92 Avenue when it was struck in the rear corner by a newer-model dark-coloured pick-up truck, which was turning off 138 Street and heading west on 92 Avenue.

The Mazda 3 was sent into a retaining wall in the 13900-block of 92 Avenue, causing serious, but non-life threatening injuries to two occupants, both 17 years old.

The male driver suffered chest injuries and a male passenger sustained a broken arm. Police say there was a third occupant of the car who wasn't harmed.

While there was an "N" in the back window of the Mazda 3 to indicate he was a new driver, police don't believe that had anything to do with the accident.

"There's no indication that they were doing anything wrong other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time," said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. "Nothing to suspect but anything but bad timing."

The newer pick-up truck was last seen driving westbound on 92 Avenue away from 138 Street.

Surrey Mounties are looking for public assistance in locating the pick-up involved in this collision.

Surrey RCMP are asking that anyone who witnessed the collision, or observed a newer dark-coloured pick-up with front-end damage driving away from the scene of the collision, to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
