A 3-year-old girl injured in a car crash last week in Surrey is expected to make a full recovery, thanks in part to several Good Samaritans who helped at the scene of the accident.

In a statement Monday, Surrey RCMP thanked witnesses who were on scene, including an off-duty Coquitlam RCMP officer who provided first aid to the child and redirected traffic in the area. Two others, including an off-duty nurse, also provided assistance.

The girl was one of four people sent to hospital following a collision at 168th Street and 56th Avenue just after 10 p.m. Thursday night. Police say she will likely be released from hospital in the next few days and appears to have not sustained any long-term injuries.

The accident occurred when a Honda Civic going southbound on 168th St. was turning left onto Highway 10 and was struck by an Audi A4 going northbound on 168th St.
