It’s been a dangerous morning on the roads in Cloverdale and the Surrey-Langley border, where Surrey RCMP are dealing with two separate crashes that occurred just minutes apart, and have seriously injured two people.
A motorist sustained serious, life-threatening injuries at 7:30 a.m. after colliding with the back end of a dump truck in the 15800-block of 64 Avenue, according to a press release.
Ten minutes later, a pedestrian was struck in another collision in the 5400-block of 192 Street. The pedestrian also has serious, life-threatening injuries.
Police are asking motorists to take alternate routes in order to avoid the scenes of both crashes. The Surrey RCMP’s collision analysis and reconstruction teams are expected to be on the scene for several more hours.
Traffic is blocked in both directions on 64 Avenue from 152 Street to to 166 Street, and on 192 Street between 54 AVenue and the Langley Bypass.
Anyone with more information about these collisions is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
