Fatal accidents on slippery roads over Thanksgiving long weekend

SURREY/DELTA – Three people were killed in car crashes on Highway 10 over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Two died in a five-automobile crash along a Delta stretch of the highway between Highway 91 and Scott Road late Monday afternoon.

Late Friday afternoon, in Surrey, a 40-year-old Surrey woman died at the scene when a Honda Civic T-boned the Honda CRV she was riding in at Highway 10 and 132nd Street.

There were five women in the CRV. The deceased, whose name has not been released, was the front seat passenger. The surviving four were taken to Royal Columbian Hospital while the 22-year-old Surrey woman driving the Civic was taken to Surrey Memorial Hospital.

In both cases, police cited rainy road conditions.

Meantime, a 76-year-old Surrey woman was taken to hospital in critical condition after a Honda Civic struck her down in a marked crosswalk at 140th Street and Bear Creek Drive at 8:30 a.m.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said the driver, a 24-year-old Surrey man, stopped at the scene and is cooperating with police.

Police are looking for the occupants of two vehicles that were behind the Civic and passed it on the right side after the crash.

"They probably saw something that we need to hear," Paquet said.
