Surrey firefighters had to use the jaws of life to free someone from a Chevrolet Volt after a head-on crash in the city’s Campbell Heights area Tuesday night.
It happened around 9:45 p.m. on March 12, in an industrial area near 192nd Street and 28th Avenue.
“A flatbed truck and a red car collided head-on,” said Surrey RCMP Corporal Elenore Sturko.
She added that “early indications are that the red vehicle pulled out in front of the truck,” at a stop sign and “didn’t proceed when it was safe.”
But, said Sturko, the crash is still under investigation.
Sturko said a woman was behind the wheel of the car in the crash and that she was taken to hospital and has non-life threatening injuries.
A Black Press freelancer at the scene said the vehicle came to rest next to a bus stop and had “heavy damage” to the driver’s side.
After the crash, Surrey RCMP had all directions closed and crime scene tape up.
