Police are looking for witnesses to a serious crash on Highway 1 in Abbotsford Monday night that sent four people to hospital and closed the freeway for seven hours.
Four Surrey men were severely injured when an eastbound 2003 GMC Envoy lost control while approaching the Fraser Highway exit and struck the centre median before rolling several times around 8:37 p.m., said Cpl. Robert McDonald of RCMP Traffic Services.
The front passenger who was ejected from the vehicle and the most seriously injured was airlifted to an area hospital, said McDonald.
The other three men, including the 38-year-old driver, were transported to hospital by ambulance.
All the men are in stable condition in hospital and expected to survive.
However, it's believed the severity of the injuries suffered by the GMC's occupants resulted because they weren't wearing seatbelts, McDonald said.
Speed is suspected as the major factor in the crash.
The eastbound lanes of Highway 1 were closed for seven hours as collision reconstructionists investigated the crash.
The RCMP are asking that anyone with information about the crash contact Fraser Valley Traffic Services.
"Any time we can get more witnesses it's better, especially if people saw that vehicle prior to the accident," said McDonald.
