‘Slow-speed’ crash happened Wednesday afternoon at 138 Street and 116th Avenue

SURREY — A driver of a semi-truck was shaken but not hurt after the truck he was driving was involved in a collision with a freight train late Wednesday afternoon in Surrey.

The collision happened around 4:20 p.m., at the entrance to Thornton Yard at 138 Street and 116th Avenue.

CN Public Affairs Manager Kate Fenske said the locomotive was travelling east at a slow speed when it struck the semi-truck during a “yard movement.”

Surrey Battalion Chief Brian Carmichael said the collision was minor.

“It was a slow speed, very, very minor collision and no injuries,” he said.

Surrey RCMP, fire crews and CN Police were at the scene.
