Surrey crash sends three to hospital, Langley man facing charges

FLEETWOOD — Surrey Mounties suspect alcohol played a role in a hit-and-run crash that sent three women to hospital Tuesday afternoon after firefighters freed them using the Jaws of Life.

It happened in the 17000-block of Fraser Highway at about 3 p.m., snarling early rush hour traffic.

Police said a white Dodge Charger caused the crash, which involved a grey Nissan Sentra and a black Ford 350 pickup truck.

The rear end of the Sentra was crushed, trapping the women. Police said their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Meanwhile, the RCMP obtained the Charger’s plate number and traced the car to a Langley residence, where a 31-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was arrested for dangerous operation of a vehicle and fleeing from the scene of the crash.

The man is now facing charges.
