(Photo: KEVIN HILL) Yet another Surrey RCMP traffic crash. A 72-year-old Surrey man who was injured in a South Surrey crash involving a police car on Dec. 27 has since died, the BC Coroners Service revealed Tuesday. Donald Allan Murray died in Peace Arch Hospital on New Year’s Eve of injuries sustained after his sedan and an unmarked RCMP car crashed at the intersection of 56th Avenue and 184th Street. The BC Coroners Service is investigating the circumstances of Murray’s death, as are RCMP Traffic Services and the Surrey-based Independent Investigations Office, which examines police incidents involving serious harm or death. According to the IIO, which took jurisdiction of the investigation on Dec. 31, its investigators have received “full co-operation” from Surrey RCMP. This was the latest in a string of automobile crashes involving Surrey Mounties. Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, who took over control of Surrey RCMP last June, said the frequency of crashes involving police is “100 per cent” on his radar and he is taking steps to address the situation. “It concerns me. It concerns everybody in the detachment,” he said. “We’re looking at training opportunities and initiatives.” “The very nature of police work is such that our police officers are driving at all hours of the day and night, in every possible kind of weather condition,” Fordy said. “Dynamic response to events in progress are an expectation of the public and authorized under provincial legislation. “I am very concerned whenever our members or a member of the public is injured in a police car accident,” Fordy said. “The impact of a police car accident is that they don’t arrive at a call for service, our police officers or members of the public are sometimes hurt or injured, and it is a drain on our material resources. The senior managers here at the detachment have been engaged in a series of discussions with the police officers working the streets relative to the matter.”
