Semi and pickup collide in Abbotsford

Both vehicles end up in a ditch after crash at Huntingdon and Lefeuvre roads.



The driver of a pickup truck involved in a collision with a semi has been ticketed for running a stop sign, according to Abbotsford Police.

The crash took place at about 10 p.m. Monday at the intersection of

Huntingdon and Lefeuvre roads in Abbotsford.

Const. Ian MacDonald said a semi was travelling east on Huntingdon Road and collided with a Ford F-150 that was heading north on Lefeuvre. Stop signs at that intersection are located on the north and south sides of Lefeuvre.

The crash sent the two vehicles into ditches on opposite sides of Huntingdon. The semi hit a hydro pole, knocking out power to about 1,500 customers for several hours.

The driver of the truck, a 27-year-old man from Langley, had to be extricated from his vehicle. He was complaining of a shoulder injury, was taken to hospital for assessment, and was released.

The driver of the semi, a 32-year-old Abbotsford man, was not injured.
