A South Surrey resident is dead after a serious two-vehicle collision on 32 Avenue Saturday afternoon.
Surrey RCMP said the 57-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was killed after the red Jeep SUV he was driving westbound in the 17000-block of 32 Avenue collided with a dump truck travelling eastbound around 4:30 p.m.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the SUV struck one of the axles of the trailer. Charges will not be laid in connection with the collision, he said.
“At first blush, it appears the Jeep came over the centre line,” Schumann said.
The driver of the dump truck did not suffer any injuries.
RCMP closed 32 Avenue between 168 and 172 streets for several hours Saturday evening while they investigated the crash.
Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, quoting file number 2015-94836.
