Fire crews try to douse a burning semi after a collision in Guildford Wednesday night.

Two survive fiery Surrey crash

Highway 15 shut down for several hours after fully loaded semi and pickup collide

Two people are lucky to be alive after a fiery crash in Guildford this week.

On Wednesday, at about 10:30 p.m. a loaded semi tractor trailer was heading northbound on 176 Street, while a pickup truck was navigating a left hand turn from 176 Street onto 88 Avenue.

The two vehicles collided at that intersection, and the tractor trailer caught fire.

Emergency crews arrived and single occupants of each vehicle were taken to hospital by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries.

Highway 15 (176 Street) was closed for hours.

Surrey Mounties are seeking public assistance, and asking anyone who may have witnesses the collision to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
