Man airlifted in “serious to critical” condition following crash on 152 Street

Road closed after Purolator truck ends up in ditch

A man in his 60s has been airlifted to hospital with “serious to critical” injuries following a collision on 152 Street in South Surrey.

Officers with Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team are currently on the scene, in the 4200-block of 152 Street, and the road is expected to remain closed between 40 and 48 avenues for some time.

According to police, the collision occurred around 11:45 a.m., when a northbound car crossed the centre line, hitting a southbound delivery truck head-on.

At the scene, a Purolator truck can be seen in the southbound ditch on 152 Street.

Traffic is being rerouted along 40 Avenue and Colebrook Road.

According to one passerby, a truck “lost control and went in the ditch,” and other cars “slammed” into each other.

It’s unclear at this time what caused the car to veer across the centre line.

More to come….
