Careening vehicle hits pedestrians waiting to cross street in Surrey
Two people are in hospital with serious injuries as the indirect result of a two-vehicle collision in Surrey Saturday night.
At about 6:30 pm, at the intersection of Fraser Highway & 148th Street, two vehicles – an Acura and a Ford – collided, sending one car careening off and striking two pedestrians waiting to cross the street.
The vehicle came to rest pinning both pedestrians – a man and a woman, both age 50 – beneath it and against a light post. Firefighters were able to free them quickly by winching up the vehicle.
The pedestrians appeared to be conscious and talking to first responders when they were rescued.
Both drivers remained on scene and are cooperating with police. Alcohol and drugs are not believed to have been factors in this collision.
The incident is still under investigation as led by the Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team.
The intersection is partially closed (eastbound only) while police investigate.
Anyone with more information, including any dashcam footage, is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file 2019-6057.
