The video starts with cars revving the engines and the speeding off — appearing to start a race on Highway 10 on Sunday. Seconds later, one slams into the other, and they both come to a halt.

WARNING: Video contains explicit language.

Surrey RCMP Const. Richard Wright says someone shared the video with them on Twitter and officers are looking into it.

“If anyone else witnessed the collision or if they have dashcam footage of those two vehicles along the stretch of Highway 10 at any point, we are asking those people to make contact with the police,” he says.

Wright says they are reaching out to the drivers in the video, and the people that caught it on video.

“Our traffic enforcement unit is looking into the incident and they’re reaching out to the owners of the two vehicles and they’re looking to identify all the factors that were present leading up to the collision,” he says.

The investigation is still underway, but it’s possible tickets will be handed out.
