SURREY — Police say a driver has been arrested after a U-Haul truck crashed into a bus stop in Surrey Monday afternoon, destroying the shelter and shearing a hydro pole. The single-vehicle collision happened near the intersection of 104th Avenue and 140th Street around 4:30 p.m.

“The crash left the pole hanging from the wires and leaning within a few feet of an apartment building,” said a Black Press freelancer at the scene. “The incident caused a power outage in the area including the Surrey Central Skytrain station.”

Surrey RCMP Corporal Elenore Sturko said the driver, a 25-year-old woman, was arrested at the scene.

“No charges have been laid and the investigation is on-going,” added Sturko.

The accident caused traffic delays in all directions Monday evening. No serious injuries have been reported.
