The vehicle appears to have crossed 16th Avenue and gone through a patch of bushes. Police said the vehicle rolled several times before stopping at the cemetery.
According to police, the vehicle was stolen overnight from Langley, but only reported missing Sunday morning.
Both of the deceased were “known to police for their criminality,” according to an RCMP media release.
Surrey’s RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT) along with the Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstructionist Services (ICARS) are working the case.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Surrey RCMP or contact Crime Stoppers if they wish to remain anonymous.
