Driver, pedestrian injured in South Surrey collision

T-bone crash took place at same intersection as serious collision Nov. 16.

A Surrey firefighter tends to a driver involved in a collision at 136 Street and 28 Avenue Saturday afternoon.

A driver and a pedestrian were injured in a South Surrey crash Saturday that took place in the same intersection as a serious accident less than two weeks prior.

The most recent crash occurred at noon Nov. 28, when a Toyota Camry travelling southbound on 136 Street T-boned a five-ton commercial truck travelling westbound on 28 Avenue.

The Camry then “bounced off” the collision and struck a pedestrian who was walking her two dogs, according to Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann.

The 48-year old Camry driver and the 37-year old pedestrian were both taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Schumann said speed and intoxication did not appear to be factors, and that early investigation indicates the truck had the right of way in the intersection.

On Nov. 16, a 17-year-old was airlifted to hospital after a crash witnesses described as “horrific” took place in the same residential block.

A 74-year-old woman also suffered injuries, while her 16-year-old granddaughter was not injured.

Despite the two crashes taking place in the same intersection, Schumann said the area has not been identified as a high-accident location by police.

“We definitely have collision hot spots in the city,” Schumann said. “But they’re generally at major intersections along main arteries.”
