SURREY — Police say there were no major injuries in a dramatic crash on Highway 10 near 168th Avenue around 8:20 a.m. this morning.
According to Surrey RCMP, three people were taken to hospital with minor injuries and have since been released.
A white vehicle caught fire after the crash, and a dark blue SUV was left crushed and upside down.
The “SUV is alleged to have turned left in front of another vehicle,” said Corporal Scotty Schumann.
While the investigation is ongoing, Schumann described it as “relatively minor.”
An officer at the scene was “side swiped” while directing traffic, Schumann told the Now-Leader, adding the Mountie was not injured.
