Fire crews had to use the Jaws of Life to get to the three injured people, who were trapped in their vehicles. The extrication took over an hour due to the amount of damage to the two cars.

All three were transported to hospital where they remain in stable condition.

Sgt. Duane Honeyman with Surrey RCMP said investigators are examining dash camera footage from a passing vehicle to determine which vehicle ran the red light.
