A father and son were taken to hospital with minor injuries, following a crash at King George Boulevard and Crescent Road Wednesday evening.

Police and fire crews were called to the intersection just before 5:30 p.m., after a southbound Honda Accord struck a Toyota Tundra that was turning left off of Crescent Road to head north on King George.

Witnesses told police that the collision occurred when the 34-year-old Honda driver went through a red light. The impact scattered debris across the intersection; the truck came to a rest just short of the highway median, facing south.

The truck occupants – a 41-year-old Surrey man and his 11-year-old son – were taken to hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.

The Honda driver, also a Surrey resident, was released at the scene. Charges under the Motor Vehicle Act are pending.
