By R. Paul Dhillon
SURREY – The man found dead in an accident in the Newton area of Surrey that police say was suspicious is an Indo-Canadian man who was allegedly involved in the local drug trade, the LINK has learned.
On Friday, March 11 at about 9 p.m., police were called to 79 Avenue and 125 Street on a report of a car hitting a tree.
There were three cars that passed the area at the time when one of the cars hit a tree at a very high speed, bouncing off the tree and hitting a hummer and pushing the big vehicle another 10-20 feet.
“It was a fairly bad accident and luckily no one was hurt,” a neightbour told the LINK. “My kids called the ambulance and the ambulance people attended but said the man did not survive.
The victim, according to LINK sources, is a man named Lucky Dhanoa, who was allegedly involved in the local drug trade, and was found with drugs and money at the time of his death.
A witness at the scene believed the man had been shot, but that account has not been confirmed by police.
The man in the car was rushed to hospital, but succumbed to his injuries a short time later.
“We are looking for anyone that may have been in the area at the time of the crash to come forward with information,” said IHIT Sgt. Stephanie Ashton.
