‘Potentially life-threatening’ injuries in South Surrey crash

152 Street was closed between Colebrook Road and 40 Avenue for several hours

Police say one driver suffered potentially life-saving injuries in a South Surrey collision Tuesday morning (March 31) near the intersection of 152 Street and 40 Avenue.

According to a news release, Surrey RCMP were alerted to a crash involving two vehicles just before 9 a.m. The second driver suffered serious injuries, it notes.

Police remained on the scene, and closed 152 Street between Colebrook Road and 40 Avenue in both directions while the detachment’s Collision Investigation Team and the Integrated Collision Analysis Response Section investigated.

“These closures are expected to remain in place for several hours,” the release added.

A tweet from the City of Surrey’s traffic Twitter account, just before 9 a.m. Tuesday, advised motorists to “consider using King George Blvd to go into and out of South Surrey.”

The road was reopened by 5:30 p.m.
