One seriously injured in head-on crash

Driver of off-road quad taken to hospital after hitting pickup truck in South Surrey

A collision between a quad all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) and a pickup truck in South Surrey late Monday afternoon critically injured a 22-year-old Langley man.

It happened around 4:30 p.m. near 192 Street and 37 Avenue.

Police said the man was heading north on 192 Street, following an SUV driven by his girlfriend.

They were heading to a gravel pit to practise with the quad, when the girlfriend  apparently missed a turn and suddenly applied the brakes.

The man on the ATV swerved to avoid a rear-end collision, into oncoming traffic where he was hit by a pickup truck pulling a utility trailer.

The injured man was airlifted to hospital with what were described as critical injuries including multiple fractures and a collapsed lung.

The investigation into the crash is continuing.
