Police seek witnesses to Hwy. 10 crash in east Delta
Delta Police are looking for additional witnesses to a three-vehicle collision on Highway 10 in east Delta Monday morning (Feb. 28) which resulted in airlifting one of the victims to hospital.
According to Delta Police, around 10:43 a.m. a semi truck loaded with lumber was traveling westbound on Highway 10 when it lost control on a curve in the road near Highway 91 and entered oncoming traffic in the east bound lanes, striking two vehicles. One of the vehicles was crushed under the semi in a ditch.
Police said the driver of that vehicle suffered serious, but non life-threatening injuries and was flown by helicopter to hospital.
The accident forced closure of Highway 10 between 104 St. and the Highway 91 interchange until later that evening as the road was cleared of debris and investigators examined the scene.
Delta Police did speak with witnesses at the scene but believe there are additional witnesses who have not been identified or spoken to yet by police.
Specifically, they want to talk to a semi truck driver who was traveling east bound along Highway 10 and had to veer onto the shoulder to avoid a head-on collision.
According to police, the driver of this second semi truck stopped and waited at the scene. However, he left prior to providing information to police.
In an effort to further the investigation, the Delta police are asking the driver of that semi truck to come forward. Anyone else who may have witnessed the collision is also asked to call the Delta Police at 604-946-4411 and quote Delta Police file #11-3162.
