Langley woman dies in head on with semi truck

A 21-year-old Langley woman is dead after a head-on collision with a truck in Surrey  on Friday afternoon.

At about 3 p.m., emergency crews were called to 104 Avenue and 156 Street, where a woman in a Volkswagen beetle and a semi truck collided.

The woman was taken to hospital where she died.

The driver of the truck was uninjured.

After hitting the car, the semi then slammed through a bus shelter and crashed into Fraser Heights Animal Hospital. No one was hurt at the bus stop or the vet's office and no animals were harmed.

Surrey RCMP have not said if the wet weather, speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.

Meanwhile, Surrey RCMP is also investigating an accident where a pedestrian was seriously injured outside T-Barz strip club in the 10400-block of Whalley Boulevard.

A woman suffered serious head injuries after she was hit by a male driver at about 2 a.m. on Saturday.

Investigations into both incidents continue.
