A 56-year-old Surrey man has died following a car crash in Newton Sunday afternoon.

The man and his wife were travelling southbound on 144 Street when their Ford Bronco was struck on its passenger-side by a Lexus heading eastbound along 60 Avenue.

The Bronco was spun around and flipped onto its driver side.

The driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was partially ejected from the car and pinned underneath the vehicle.

His wife, who was wearing her seatbelt, was suspended in the cab of the overturned vehicle and had to be cut out by Surrey Fire Service.

She was taken to hospital and survived.

Neither alcohol nor excessive speed were factors in the collision.

The Lexus driver, a 73-year-old Burnaby man, had with him a 67-year-old passenger from Calgary.

Both were transported to hospital with minor injuries and released later in the day.

The crash is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
