Teen expected to live after being ejected from vehicle in Surrey crash

‘Seatbelts are greatest contributor to a reduction in traffic fatalities’ says Surrey RCMP

NEWTON — A 13-year-old girl is in critical condition after being ejected from a vehicle in a crash Sunday, but police say she’s expected to live.

She wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, according to Surrey RCMP.

The collision happened around 2 p.m. at the intersection of 64th Avenue and 124th Street.

“Had the young girl been wearing her seatbelt, there is a high likelihood she would have received only minor injuries,” said Corporal Scotty Schumann. “Seatbelts are greatest contributor to a reduction in traffic fatalities.’”

He added: “It appears the vehicle she was travelling in ran a red light.”

According to Surrey RCMP, four other individuals were transported to hospital to treat minor injuries.

Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team is leading the ongoing investigation.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. If they wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or solvecrime.ca.
