Numerous vehicles were involved in the chain reaction-style, multi-car collision.
At approximately 9 pm, Surrey RCMP responded to a 911 call reporting a multi-car crash on 64th Avenue.
The caller said a Black Cadillac had been involved in a collision with a vehicle on 64th Avenue and 168th Street.
But the Cadillac didn’t stop at the scene, continuing instead eastbound along 64th Avenue eastbound.
Just before the intersection of 64th Avenue and 176th Street, the driver of the Cadillac struck the back of a grey Honda Prelude.
The impact pushed the Honda Prelude into the Shell gas station on the southwest corner, causing the Honda to hit a fuel pump.
Surrey fire crews, paramedics and RCMP officers officers attended to the scene.
The three people in the Honda were trapped as a result of the incident and had to be freed by firefighters.
All three were taken to hospital, the male driver in a critical conditions, a female passenger in serious condition and a male passenger suffering non-life threatening injuries.
The 22-year-old female driver of the Cadillac – a Surrey resident – was located at the scene of the second collision and detained.
“Alcohol, drugs and/or speed have not been ruled out as contributing factors of the collision,” Surrey RCMP said in a release.
