This story has been updated.

Emergency crews responded overnight to reports of a head-on collision on Highway 99 in South Surrey. Surrey RCMP suspects alcohol and speed to be a factor in the crash.

According to a witness on site, the incident happened around 12:15 a.m. in the construction zone just south of King George Boulevard, where lanes of traffic have been altered.

One of the vehicles rolled onto its side trapping multiple occupants, the witness said. Surrey firefighters used the Jaws of Life and other equipment to free the victims.

At least two people were transported to hospital by BCAS with no serious injuries.

RCMP had traffic stopped in both directions while emergency personnel worked at the scene.
