Single-vehicle collision in Surrey leads to road closure

ON Sunday at approximately 2:06 p.m. Surrey RCMP responded to a single-vehicle collision on 60 Avenue, east of 150 Street. The vehicle struck numerous parked cars before striking a utility pole, downing the pole and wires.

The collision and damage to the utility pole has resulted in the closure of 60 Avenue, between 150 Street and 152 Street to facilitate removal of the vehicle and installation of a new power pole. The road is expected to be closed for the next few hours

Surrey RCMP are advising that there will be traffic congestion in the area until the damage has been fixed, and local area busses will be re-routed.
