UPDATE: Woman airlifted after Campbell Heights collision

Crash between 4x4 and sedan occurred in industrial area at 34A Avenue and 190 Street in South Surrey

A 52-year-old woman is in hospital with what Surrey RCMP are calling “serious, but not life threatening” injuries, following a crash between a pickup truck and a sedan in Campbell Heights Monday evening.

Police and Surrey Fire crews arrived at the scene of the collision – which took place shortly before 7 p.m. at 34A Avenue and 190 Street – to find a Dodge 4×4 pickup and a Dodge Avenger sedan sitting far apart following impact. The lone occupant of the Avenger was trapped inside the car, requiring firefighters to use the jaws of life to remove the door.

The victim was subsequently airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital.

The driver of the pickup, a 19-year-old woman, was loaded into an ambulance.

A Surrey RCMP spokesperson said Tuesday that the Dodge pickup was headed north and the Avenger was westbound when the collision occurred.

A number of other 4×4 vehicles were stopped at the scene, roads were closed temporarily and witnesses were being questioned by RCMP.

Surrey RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the cause of the accident, which took place in an industrial area adjacent to open space frequently used for off-road driving. Although there are no indications this was a factor, the RCMP spokesperson said they are “looking at the actions of both drivers.”

Anyone with information on the accident and the actions of the drivers is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
