A terrible crash in Delta this week sent a man to hospital with serious injuries, while shutting down Nordel Way for about seven hours.

Police are still trying to piece together exactly what happened.

At about 9:40 p.m. on Tuesday, a 24-year-old man driving a grey Toyota westbound on Nordel Way crossed the centre line at about 112 Street.

The vehicle smashed into a red Chevy sedan and a burgundy Chevy minivan.

The driver of the minivan and the grey Toyota were trapped inside their vehicles and had to be extricated by Delta fire crews.

The driver of the minivan sustained only minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

The driver of the sedan was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the Toyota suffered a broken pelvis, hip and sternum.

Nordel Way was closed until about 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Police have not charged any of the drivers in the accident, but say speed was definitely a factor.
