Two Guildford homes hit by vehicles

A separate crash involves three cars, sends several to hospital.

Six Surrey residents were taken to hospital early Sunday after a “bizarre” Guildford-area crash ended with two houses sustaining significant damage.

According to police, the collision occurred around 6 a.m. in the intersection of 152 Street and 92 Avenue, between an eastbound black Honda Pilot SUV and a southbound white Chevrolet Cruze sedan.

The initial impact sent the Cruze careening into a nearby house.

The SUV hit a second house after its driver and passenger exited to wait at the roadside and the vehicle started moving unmanned. Police said the SUV backed into a lamp pole, and that impact apparently jarred its transmission into drive, sending it back across the road and into another house.

Exactly why the vehicle started rolling is unclear, however, police said it’s possible the transmission was damaged in the collision, or the driver may have failed to put the SUV in park.

Cpl. Scotty Schumann said on its own, the collision would have been considered relatively minor.

“It would be a non-reportable incident if it wasn’t for the two homes that were struck,” he said.

The occupants of both vehicles were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Schumann said that cause of the crash remains under investigation, however, alcohol has been ruled out as a factor.

 

Three-car crash

 

Mounties investigating a three-vehicle crash in Newton Friday night are appealing for witnesses.

Details are limited, however, police say the collision occurred just before 10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, when a white Jeep traveling westbound in the 14200-block of 72 Avenue struck two vehicles, causing significant damage.

All of the vehicles’ occupants were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
