Minor injuries in four-vehicle South Surrey crash

A medical issue is being blamed for a four-vehicle crash on King George Boulevard at 152 Street.

A medical issue is being blamed for a four-vehicle crash on King George Boulevard at 152 Street this morning.

Police say the crash occurred around 7:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of the South Surrey thoroughfare, when a 48-year-old White Rock man suffered a medical event, and hit the accelerator of the Honda Ridgeline he was driving.

The passenger reportedly reached over to try and steer the truck off the road, but was unsuccessful.

A domino effect followed, resulting in damage to three other vehicles: a Malibu sedan, a Chevy Silverado and a Highlander crossover. The Silverado came to rest on the boulevard’s median.

All four drivers plus one passenger were taken to hospital for minor injuries, and westbound King George was closed to traffic between 26 Avenue and 152 Street while crews cleaned up the vehicles and debris.
