Surrey RCMP is advising the public of a single vehicle collision which has caused a severe traffic disruption.

On March 21, 2023, at approximately 6:17 a.m., Surrey RCMP were called to a single vehicle collision at the intersection of 148th street and 64th avenue. A commercial vehicle appears to have struck a Hydro pole carrying active power lines.

Due to the location of the collision and the subsequent downed power line, 64th avenue is closed from 152nd street to 146th street. 148th street is closed from 68th avenue to 62nd avenue. Motorists are asked to avoid the area and find a different route for their morning commute.

The incident is still under investigation but alcohol and speed are not believed to be factors.
Anyone with more information, including dash cam footage around the area of 64th and 148th, between 0610hrs and 0625hrs, is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 and quote file 2023-43574.
