Early morning crash sends couple to hospital

A Surrey couple, both 71, were hit head-on at 264 Street and 56 Avenue. A 61-year-old driver of the pick up was given a ticket.

An early morning crash at 264 Street and 56 Avenue sent a senior Surrey couple to hospital on Thursday.

Around 4 a.m., a 61-year-old Mission man was driving a pick up truck when he attempted to make a left hand turn in front of the Surrey seniors white Acura Integra.

Damage to the front end of their Integra is extensive and the couple, both 71-years-old, were temporarily trapped inside. An air ambulance was called in but then cancelled once the couple’s injuries were assessed, said police.

The 61-year-old driver was not injured and remained at the scene. He was issued a violation ticket, said Langley RCMP. The couple were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors, said police.

It was a downpour at the time, but it isn’t known if weather played a role. The road was temporarily closed while police investigated, but was re-opened by the morning rush hour.
