Vavenby firefighters help out at crash

Truck driver from Surrey unfortunately died after his semi left Highway 5

The three trucks from the Vavenby fire department responded to a single vehicle accident two km north of the Vavenby turnoff on Tuesday, April 17.

A semi had gone off the road and rolled onto its roof. The fire trucks hosed the area with foam as a precaution against a spark hitting the dripping diesel.

The rescue unit came to cut the driver out of his truck. Two police cars directed traffic and an ambulance plus air ambulance also arrived at the scene.

Unfortunately, the driver was killed in the crash.
