Child ejected as Surrey collision shears car in half

Highway 10 was closed for several hours Thursday night following a high-speed collision in Cloverdale

A three-year-old girl was airlifted to hospital with significant injuries Thursday evening following a collision that sheared one vehicle in half.

The crash occurred around 10:15 p.m. at 168 Street and Highway 10 in Cloverdale, when a Honda Civic southbound on 168 Street attempted to turn left onto Highway 10. It was hit by a northbound Audi A4.

Force of the impact ejected the girl – who was in a child seat in a rear passenger seat of the Honda – from the vehicle.

She remains in hospital in serious but stable condition.

“She suffered some pretty significant injuries,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet.

The girl’s mother and the two occupants of the Audi were taken to hospital for minor injuries and released.

Police closed Highway 10 for several hours to investigate. Alcohol and drugs have been ruled out as possible factors in the collision. Paquet said speed and weather conditions may have contributed.

Investigation is ongoing, and it’s believed there are witnesses who did not stop to speak with police. Paquet urged those individuals to contact the Criminal Collision Investigation Team at 604-599-0502.

“We had reports… that several vehicles who had to see the crash just kept driving,” he said. “We’d like to speak to those people.”
