Wet roads and speed are being cited as factors in a three-vehicle crash on Crescent Road that sent one woman to hospital by air ambulance Friday.

The collision occurred just before 4:30 p.m. in the 13400-block of Crescent Road, when the driver of a westbound Jaguar lost control on a curve.

The Jaguar sideswiped an eastbound Ford Escape, then spun head-on into an oncoming Mazda.

"That collision caused minor injuries to the driver and passenger of the Jaguar and serious but non-lifethreatening (injuries) to the driver of the Mazda," Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said.

The Mazda driver, a 42-year-old Langley woman, was airlifted from the parking lot of nearby Elgin Heritage Park.

South Surrey resident Ina Van Tonder was walking her dog in the area at the time. She didn't see the crash but said police closed Crescent Road on either side of the scene after it happened.

Officers with the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service and Surrey RCMP's traffic unit attended.

Paquet said charges are pending against the Jaguar driver, an 18-year-old Surrey man.
