A vehicle was flipped on its side and caught fire after a three-vehicle collision in Surrey on Tuesday evening.

Around 8 pm, Surrey RCMP, along with fire and ambulance crews, responded to reports of the collision on 64th Avenue, near 127A Street.

Police said that a 22-year Surrey man was driving a grey Toyota 4-Runner west along 64th Avenue, when his vehicle was rear-ended by a Black Chrysler 300.

The Toyota then went off the road, rolled onto its side and caught fire.

The Chrysler, driven by a 33-year-old Surrey resident, continued west on 64th Avenue, where it then collided with another vehicle, a Cadillac Escalade, being driven by a 42-year- old Surrey woman.

The vehicle fire was extinguished and the driver of the 4-Runner was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

All drivers remained at the scene for police attendance.

Police said they are still investigating the incident, noting that speed and alcohol have not been ruled out as factors in the crash.
