Dangerous weekend on roads

SURREY/DELTA – One man was killed this past weekend in one of three serious traffic crashes in Surrey.

 

The victim, a 40-year-old resident of Surrey, died in hospital late Sunday afternoon. His name has not been released. He was a passenger in a silver Honda Accord driven by a 17-year-old girl. Police said the car was turning left onto 146th Street off 108th Avenue when it was T-boned by a Honda CrV driven by a 60-year-old Surrey woman.

 

"The passenger in the silver Honda Accord was trapped in the vehicle and in full cardiac arrest when transported to hospital," Surrey rCmP Staff Sgt. murray Hedderson said.

 

The crash happened at 1:45 p.m. Police are also investigating a hit-and-run crash in Whalley Saturday. A 69-year-old woman sustained severe injuries to her legs after being struck down as she was walking at 92nd Avenue and King George Boulevard at 5 p.m. "A witness reported seeing a white or grey vehicle travelling northbound on King George Boulevard at a high rate of speed from the scene of the collision," Hedderson said.

 

Shortly after 7 a.m. that morning, a grey 2002 Honda van slammed into a bus stop on 96th Avenue near 140th Street. Two passengers were taken to hospital by ambulance while the driver was treated at the scene.

 

"Alcohol appears to be a contributing factor in the collision, and the passengers possibly failing to wear seatbelts may have been a factor in the injuries to the occupants of the vehicle," Hedderson said.

 

Police ask witnesses to any of these crashes to contact the Surrey rCmP at 604-599-0502 or call Crime Stoppers.

 

Meantime, Delta was also the scene of a spectacular series of crashes Sunday morning on the Alex fraser Bridge, near nordel Way. Delta firefighters freed two victims, from separate vehicles, using the Jaws of Life. They were taken to royal Columbian Hospital with serious injuries.

 

Motorists involved in a first crash reportedly ran across the freeway, resulting in a second traffic collision.
