UPDATE: Baby in stable condition after truck crashes into Surrey home

A 57-year-old man who was driving the truck was taken into police custody, but has since been released

WHALLEY — A baby was taken to hospital Wednesday night after a pickup truck crashed into the basement of a Surrey home, trapping the four-month-old.

A Black Press freelancer at the scene said firefighters worked “feverishly” to find and free the baby, using multiple tools including chainsaws, sledgehammers, Jaws of Life, among others. It happened around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night, in the 9000-block of Alexandria Crescent.

Footage from the scene shows the front end of the vehicle inside the home.

The baby was freed, and passed to waiting parademics who rushed the child to hospital, said the freelancer.

Surrey RCMP said Thursday morning the baby was injured, but in stable condition in hospital.

“Police remain on scene until the structure of the residence is inspected by engineers,” said Sergeant Chad Greig Thursday morning, “and then the truck will be removed.”

The cause of the crash is still being investigated.

The 57-year-old male driver of the vehicle was taken into police custody Wednesday night, but has since been released.

Surrey-based business Ace Electric Ltd.’s decals were on the side of the truck.

Surrey RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team will be continuing with the investigation into the cause of the incident.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or solvecrime.ca.
