Police investigate at the scene of a two-vehicle crash Sunday evening in South Surrey.

Girl, 9, airlifted following South Surrey crash

Five people were injured in a two-vehicle crash in South Surrey Sunday evening.



A young girl was airlifted to BC Children’s Hospital with a broken leg Sunday evening following a serious collision in South Surrey.

The nine-year-old was among five people injured in the crash, which occurred around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of 152 Street and 20 Avenue, when a Mercedes attempting a left turn onto 20 Avenue from 152 Street struck a southbound Toyota minivan.

Police say both vehicles were proceeding through the intersection on a late yellow light.

Both vehicles suffered substantial damage.

All four occupants of the Toyota – the nine-year-old girl, a five-year-old boy, and their parents, aged 35 and 36 – were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Mercedes driver, a 17-year-old South Surrey resident, was taken to Peace Arch Hospital. He was issued a ticket for driving without due care in connection with the crash.

The crash occurred just two days after a five-year-old boy was struck in a hit-and-run in north Surrey. The youngster, who was hit Friday afternoon as he crossed at 161 Street and 92 Avenue, remains in hospital with serious head injuries.

Police say a 26-year-old woman turned herself into police on Saturday, and the suspect vehicle was found at a residence blocks away from the collision scene.

As of Monday, no charges had been laid and the driver’s name had not been released.
