Abbotsford Police seek two men who assisted at Agassiz crash scene

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is wanting to hear from two men who assisted at the scene of a fatal collision in Agassiz on July 12.

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is wanting to hear from two men who assisted at the scene of a fatal collision in Agassiz on July 12.

The APD is continuing to investigate the crash in which a Chilliwack RCMP cruiser collided with a Mustang occupied by 20-year-old driver Steve Genberg of Mission and a 19-year-old male passenger. Genberg died in hospital on July 18.

Genberg was reportedly leading a convoy of four or five vehicles en route to Harrison Hot Springs, travelling along Lougheed Highway near Bodnar Road when the crash occurred at about 11 p.m.

Const. Ian MacDonald said two men in a red or burgundy sedan assisted at the crash scene, but left before investigators were able to interview them or get their names.

It is believed that one or both of them were volunteer firefighters on their way from Agassiz to Vancouver. One of the men mentioned he had family from Yugoslavia, and the other indicated he was a mortgage broker, MacDonald said.

He said it is believed the men’s vehicle might have been passed by the police car a few moments before the crash.

MacDonald said neither man has since come forward to share information with police. He said they might be from out of town, or they might believe they have nothing to add to the investigation.

Anyone with information about the two men is asked to contact the APD at 604-859-5225.
