VIDEO: Driver freed with jaws of life after rollover car crash in Surrey

Police say a 60-year-old Surrey man crashed his car into a parked vehicle, then that one hit another

WHALLEY — Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free the driver of a vehicle involved in a crash Wednesday morning.

The crash happened at about 9:30 a.m. in the 13500-block of 98th Avenue, near King George Boulevard.

Surrey RCMP Sergeant Alanna Dunlop told the Now-Leader on Wednesday that a 60-year-old Surrey man crashed his car into a parked vehicle, then that one hit another.

“After that, the vehicle was flipped over on its roof,” she said. “He was successfully extracted from the vehicle and Surrey Fire was on scene to assist with that.”

The man was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police say.

“We are continuing to investigate the factors that may have contributed to the incident,” Dunlop said.

Asked if speed was a factor she said it “may or may not have been.”

“It’s too early to tell.”
