Homicide team investigates 'suspicious' death after Surrey car accident
Police say fatal injuries were 'inconsistent' with a car crash
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is looking into a suspicious death following a car accident in Surrey Friday evening.
The accident happened around 9:15 p.m. in the 7900 block of 123A street in Newton, a residential area.
When Surrey RCMP arrived on scene, they found a man suffering from injuries they say were "inconsistent" with a car crash. He was the lone occupant of the vehicle.
The man was taken to hospital, but died a short time later. IHIT was called in to take over the probe.
