Two pedestrians were struck by a vehicle after a two-vehicle collision Saturday evening.
Surrey RCMP responded to the collision, located at the 148 Street and Fraser Highway intersection, at approximately 6:35 p.m., an RCMP news release states.
“An Acura and a Ford collided in the intersection causing one of the vehicles to strike two pedestrians who were on foot in the area,” the release states.
Both pedestrians, a 50-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman, were transported to hospital in “serious condition.”
Police said both drivers remained on scene and are co-operating with police.
“Alcohol and drugs are not believed to have been factors in this collision,” the news release states.
