Serious, potentially life-threatening injuries in Lower Mainland crash

Police closed road for several hours

There are “serious and potentially life threatening” injuries following a crash in Surrey Friday night (Oct. 4).

Police responded to a two-car collision at the 133rd Street and Old Yale Road intersection just after 8 p.m., according to a Surrey RCMP release.

Police said “serious and potentially life threatening injuries have been sustained” as a result of the crash.

Old Yale Road, between 132nd Street and University Drive, was closed for several hours while police investigated, the release states. Police asked the public to avoid the area.

A Black Press Media freelancer on scene said a Mercedes was driving westbound on Old Yale Road when it crashed into the other car, sending the vehicle into a fence.

The freelancer said firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to free two occupants.
