SURREY, B.C. – A Korean woman visiting B.C. has been killed in a single-car accident and three others including the driver of the vehicle have been taken to hospital.

RCMP Staff-Sgt. Dave Peat said the woman was sitting in the rear of the grey Honda Civic when it slammed into a light pole at about 10:48 p.m. on Saturday night.

The crash occurred at 96th Avenue and Barnston Road in Surrey. Police are investigating how the accident occurred but have stated alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

“A rear female passenger, age 53 years, was found deceased at scene. The deceased is a Korean National,” said Peat.

He said the driver of the vehicle was taken to Langley Memorial Hospital where he is under observation.

A 26-year-old man who was a passenger suffered minor injuries and was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital along with a 24-year-old man who suffered critical injuries, he said.

“The driver and passengers have been interviewed by Police. Alcohol does not appear as a factor. The cause of the accident is being investigated by Surrey Traffic Services,” he said.

The name of the Korean national will not be released at until relatives have been notified.
