Five people were taken to hospital after a crash on Lougheed Highway in Pitt Meadows on Wednesday.

The collision involved two vehicles near Park Road around 6:45 p.m.

“An eastbound Mazda car collided with a Hyndai SUV, resulting in the driver and passenger of the car receiving significant, but non-life threatening, injuries,” according to Ridge Meadows RCMP.

The driver and two children in the SUV were also taken to hospital with what are believed to be minor injuries.

A B.C. Ambulance helicopter was used to take one person to hospital, while the others were taken by ground.

“Fortunately none of the injuries are believed to be life threatening,” Winpenny added.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
