Children pulled from South Surrey crash scene

Two children – a brother and sister, aged four and five years old – were pulled from a rolled SUV Monday afternoon, following a dramatic-looking crash in South Surrey.

Police were called to the scene, on 144 Street, just south of 28 Avenue, just after 1:30 p.m. (Feb. 6), after a white Mazda SUV and black Saab 9000 sedan collided. The impact caused the SUV to roll; it came to rest on its roof in a ditch.

All three occupants of the Mazda – police say the driver was the mother of the two children – were taken to hospital for observation. They suffered minor injuries, Cpl. Drew Grainger said, noting, “it looked worse than it was.”

An eyewitness told Peace Arch News the occupants of the SUV – taken from the scene on stretchers – did not appear to be seriously hurt.

“Just shaken up,” he said.

The Saab driver, who was reportedly travelling with two dogs, was not injured.

A charge of failing to yield at a stop sign is being considered against one of the drivers, Grainger said.
