SURREY: One person received serious injuries after a minivan crashed into a basement suite in Surrey early this morning.

It happened around 3:00am near 125th Street and 72nd Avenue.

R.C.M.P. Staff Sergeant Bob Pinkewicz says the crash even started a fire in the unit.

The resident in the basement sustained significant, serious injuries and was transported to hospital.

The three people in the minivan fled the scene – however the Mounties were able to catch one of them.

He’s facing multiple charges.
