Two pedestrians were taken to a local hospital with serious injuries Tuesday night after they were struck in a chain-reaction crash in Fisher’s Landing, according to the Vancouver Police Department.
The police department’s traffic unit was dispatched at 10:09 p.m. to a reported critical-injury crash at the intersection of Southeast 164th Avenue and 34th Street in east Vancouver. A vehicle ran a red light and T-boned a C-Tran bus, according to police.
Fifteen minutes later, another vehicle ran over emergency reflectors and rear-ended an assisting vehicle, police said. The force of the crash pushed the assisting vehicle into the two pedestrians.
Police said the pedestrians’ injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
The traffic unit is continuing to investigate.
