A pickup truck and semi truck collided at the Hwy 1 and Hwy 9 overpass at Bridal Falls on Monday morning, causing major damage to the pickup. The collision damaged a fuel tank and caused a diesel spill in the area, with diesel fumes filling the area.

While there were initial reports of smoke at the scene, there was no fire. Crews from the Seabird Fire Dept. and Popkum Fire Dept. both responded, flagging traffic and assisting RCMP and paramedics as they assessed the collision and the drivers involved.

There were no serious injuries reported.

Cpl. Jeff Bodner with Fraser Valley Traffic Services said the incident happened at about 9:30 a.m.

“The right hand side tank of the semi was ruptured and all the diesel (approx 400-600 litres) was spilled,” he said. Hwy #9 was closed for about four or five hours for cleanup.
