A medical problem may be the cause of a multiple vehicle crash near the Surrey – Langley border Thursday night (June 2) that sent two men to hospital with serious injuries.
Shortly after 6 p.m. a Chevy pickup truck driven by a 63-year-old Langley man was heading east on Highway 10 when it hit a Honda Prelude operated by another Langley man, also 63, sending the smaller car into a lamp standard at 188 Street.
The Chevy then ran a red light and hit an Nissan Exterra SUV driven by a 41-year-old Surrey woman.
A fourth vehicle, a Ford Taurus driven by a 21-year-old Langley man, was also hit.
Initial reports suggest the Chevy driver may have passed out while at the wheel due to a medical condition.
He was evacuated to hospital by air ambulance with serious injuries. He remained in hospital Friday.
The driver of the Prelude also suffered serious injuries, police said.
The drivers of the two other vehicles escaped with less critical injuriies.
The Highway 10 – Langley Bypass route between 188 and 192 Streets was closed for several hours.
Surrey RCMP Traffic Services is investigating.
