Lower Mainland drivers on their morning commutes may want to avoid one particular Surrey intersection on their way to work this morning, after a dump truck and trailer ended up on its side near 32 Avenue and 152 Street.

Shortly after 8:30 a.m., the truck-and-trailer could be seen on its side in front of the Harvard Gardens townhouse complex. A load of dirt that the truck had been carrying has also spilled out onto part of the road and sidewalk.

On 32 Avenue, westbound lanes are blocked, but east-bound lanes are open. 152 Street is open in both directions.
