Pictures from the scenes showed a violent aftermath, with a car severely damaged.

“Witnesses advised that a SUV travelling along 196 Street may have missed a stopped sign, and collided with a VW Sedan who was travelling along 32 Avenue,” said Sgt. Rebecca Parslow.

“This collision caused the VW Sedan to be pushed into oncoming traffic where a secondary collision occurred with a Dodge truck.  Unfortunately, the occupants of the VW Sedan succumbed to their injuries at the scene.  The victims, a man and woman in their 50’s, were residents of Surrey.”

“People don’t realize, the sun is blinding and it’s blinding all the way down the road (here).

“You can not see anything at that time of day.”
