A man has died after his car smashed into a concrete barrier on the weekend.

Fire crews were called to an accident on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. where a man in a red Mercury Grand Marquis was in medical distress.

He had been travelling westbound on 28 Avenue and continued through 188 Street, which was closed and barricaded.

He smashed into the cement barrier, and when fire crews found him, he was having a heart attack.

He died at the scene.

Investigators are currently trying to determine if he was in cardiac arrest before the accident, as the barricade was well marked.

Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
