A 52-year-old Surrey man died Sunday from injuries suffered when he became pinned between his truck and a tree.

Police say the man was backing his GMC Sierra out of his driveway in the 6200-block of 132A Street when the tragedy occurred around 1:15 p.m.

Preliminary investigation indicates the truck's driver-side door was partially open at the time.

Despite a neighbour's efforts to revive the man, he was pronounced dead shortly after. The victim's name has not been released.

The death is the city's first traffic fatality of 2013. Police say it is "a tragic reminder that such accidents can occur even in very close proximity to your own home."
