A Surrey RCMP officer and firefighter review their paperwork at the scene of a three-vehicle collision in South Surrey on 152 St. south of 24 Avenue Tuesday (April 3) afternoon around 1:30 p.m.

The Toyota Camry seen in the foreground suffered front and rear damage when it was hit from behind by a GMC Silverado pickup truck, which forced it into the back end of an Chevy Equinox SUV.

Police, fire and ambulance crews responded.

No serious injuries were reported.

One driver was taken to hospital for a precautionary exam, then released.

Northbound traffic on 152 slowed to a crawl as two lanes merged into one to get past the crash scene.

It took about an hour before the road was completely clear.

Police said the driver of the pickup will be issued a ticket, likely for following too close given the damp road conditions.
