Two-car crash sends four to hospital in South Surrey
Four people were taken to hospital with what RCMP said were non-life-threatening injuries after a two-car collision near the intersection of 24 Avenue and King George in South Surrey Saturday night.
The police accident report said a southbound Mitsubishi Eclipse with two female occupants was turning left on 24 Avenue around 8:10 p.m. when it collided with a northbound Mazda 626 with two men on board.
All involved were from Surrey.
Fire fighters had to use the "jaws of life" to extract the driver of the Mazda.
He was airlifted from the scene by helicopter with suspected chest injuries, but released from Royal Columbian hospital later that evening.
The other three people were taken to Peace Arch Hospital by ambulance with what were described as relatively minor injuries.
The busy intersection was closed to traffic for several hours until the damaged vehicles could be removed.
