BRIEFS: Man killed in truck crash

A Surrey man died after his car collided with a dump truck on 176 Street this week.

On Wednesday afternoon, a 50-year-old man was driving his Hyndai Elantra on 176 Street when it crossed over the centre line and collided head-on with a dump truck near 86 Avenue.

The driver of the Elantra was pronounced dead at the scene, and the 45-year-old driver of the dump truck suffered minor injuries.

The investigation is continuing by Surrey RCMP Traffic Services. Any witnesses who have not already been spoken to are asked to contact Const. Gill at 604-599-0502, ext. 3410.

Undressed behind elementary school

Delta Police are looking for a man who allegedly exposed himself behind Cougar Canyon Elementary School last Friday after classes let out.

A student from nearby Seaquam Secondary School reported seeing a man at the back of the school at 11600 Lyon Road who appeared to be undressing himself. The suspect did not approach the teenage girl, but mooned her as she walked away.

The heavy-set man had a darker complexion and stood approximately 5’8”. He is between 40 and 50 years old with short black hair that is greying. He was wearing a grey and black top and grey pants.

The incident happened at about 3:40 p.m. Friday.

“It’s important for me to clarify that so that people don’t think there were young kids who would likely be in the area,” said Const. Sharlene Brooks, spokesperson for the Delta Police Department.

The suspect was gone by the time police arrived, and school staff did not recall seeing a man matching the description earlier in the day.
