Driver of Toyota Tercel suffered minor injuries after vehicle became lodged in wheel well of truck

The driver of a Toyota Tercel has only minor injuries but there is nothing left of his vehicle, which became trapped underneath a semi truck on 200 Street on Tuesday morning.

The driver, a 34-year-old Pitt Meadows man, was heading south on 200 Street around 5 a.m. when he tried to make a left onto 92A Avenue.

He slammed into a semi and the vehicle became jammed underneath the wheel well.

The driver of the semi kept driving to the truck yard before being told by police he had been in an accident.

While the car is a write-off, the driver suffered only hand and ankle injuries, said police.

Construction cones may have added to driver confusion, noted Langley RCMP.
