Surrey man, 80, dead in car crash

A Surrey man is dead after a truck collided with his car last week.

At just after 5 p.m. Friday, a 1996 Ford pick-up heading westbound on 103 Avenue and hit the driver's side door of the 80-year-old man's 2002 Chrysler 300, which was heading northbound on 128 Street.

The man in the Chrysler died at the scene.

Early indications are that the Chrysler may have failed to stop at an intersection when the truck driven by a man from Langley struck the car.

Speed or impairment are not believed to be a factors in the accident.

"It's still early in the investigation, where we need to talk to more witnesses and do a mechanical (inspection)," said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger.

Police ask anyone who may have witnessed the incident to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
