One person was transported to hospital early Tuesday (April 16), after a flat-deck carrying a Bobcat struck a utility pole on 184 Street at 40 Avenue.

According to a news release, officers were dispatched to the South Surrey intersection at approximately 1:20 a.m. The collision downed the pole and wires, prompting police to close the road between 32 and 40 Avenues.

The thoroughfare was reopened just before 8 a.m., however, the morning commute was affected for some.
