A moving truck and a large semi-truck collided in Surrey, B.C.,  Thursday afternoon, sending four people in hospital with serious injuries.

The accident occurred near the intersection of the Fraser Highway and 176 Street shortly after 1:30 p.m. PT.

Surrey RCMP say the moving truck made an abrupt stop and was then rear-ended by the semi-truck. The driver of the semi swerved after colliding with the moving truck, and hit a pick-up truck.

Police say two people from the  moving truck and the semi-truck were taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries. Nobody in the pick-up truck was injured. 

Surrey RCMP say southbound traffic is closed on 176 Street near the accident and is likely to remain closed until about 6 p.m. PT.
