Three killed in Fraser Highway crash

Three people were killed in a multi-car collision when a Honda CRX crossed the double solid line into oncoming traffic in the 24400 block of Fraser Highway on Sunday.

Around 11:45 a.m., a black Honda CRX was heading west on Fraser Highway when it crossed the double solid lines, clipped an older white Volkswagen and then collided head-on with a dark sedan travelling east on the highway.

A few seconds later, a silver Toyota, heading east on Fraser Highway rear-ended the blue sedan.

The male driver of the CRX, a man in his 20s, died on impact. His passenger, also a man in his 20s, died on the way to hospital.

The female driver of the blue sedan, believed to be in her 20s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries and her passenger, a 41-year-old woman, died on impact.

The 49-year-old female driver who was the sole occupant of the silver sedan sustained only minor injuries and the driver of the white VW didn't sustain any injuries.

Fraser Highway was closed for hours as investigators scoured through the wreckage.

The names of the deceased haven't been released yet.
