PHOTOS: Jaws of Life used after Fraser Highway crash

Witness says three taken to hospital after crash in Surrey’s Clayton Heights neighbourhood

The Jaws of Life had to be used after a crash in Clayton Heights Thursday night.

Around 7 p.m., emergency crews responded to reports of a two-vehicle collision on Fraser Highway at 68th Avenue.

Police say one vehicle “T-Boned” another.

Video footage shows emergency responders taking the door of a vehicle off to free someone trapped inside.

Police say three people were taken to hospital but none had life-threatening injuries.

Most were checked out for “whiplash style injuries,” said Sergeant Dale Carr of the Surrey RCMP.

“Charges have not yet been laid as the crash is still under investigation,” Carr added. “Alcohol is not considered to be a factor. According to witness accounts it appears one of the two vehicles failed to yield to the other.”

Traffic was snarled along the highway as crews worked at the scene.
