Delta police are appealing for any witnesses to last week’s fatal crash on Deltaport Way to come forward.

Police were called about an accident involving two semi-trailers in the 3500-block of Deltaport Way at about 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, June 13.

According to a press release, one truck was travelling eastbound and the other westbound at the time of the collision. Delta police and Delta firefighters were on scene shortly after the incident occurred.

Photos from the scene on social media show one vehicle on its side and flames rising from the front of one of the trucks.

The BC Coroners Service confirmed it is investigating the death of man at that location but could not provide any further details at this time.

Delta police confirmed that one driver received non-serious injuries.

“There are reports this vehicle may have been driven erratically, so we encourage anyone who has video to please get in touch with police,” Leykauf said in a press release.

“Additionally, if there are any witnesses to the collision or the events prior to the collision who have not yet spoken with police, we encourage them to get in touch with us.”
