Surrey RCMP, along with fire and rescue crews, were called to the intersection of Scott and Old Yale Roads around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon, after a tractor-trailer unit hauling large pipes rolled onto its side while making a turn.

Constable Sarbjit Sangha, with the Surrey RCMP, said an officer saw the vehicle rollover onto its side, hitting a lamppost.

The truck landed in the bike lane, shearing off a light pole, while the pipes rolled off onto the sidewalk area.

The driver of the truck was assessed by paramedics, but did not suffered any injuries.

Sangha said no one else was injured in the crash.

She added an investigation is still underway to determine the cause of the crash.

The crash tied up traffic in the area, causing vehicles to back up onto Highway 17.
