The driver of a small car is fortunate to not have suffered any injuries in a collision with a semi Tuesday afternoon in Abbotsford.

The crash took place after 4 p.m. between a 2000 Honda Civic headed south on Sumas Way and a semi travelling east on Vye Road.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the 54-year-old Chilliwack man driving the Honda was ticketed for running a red light. Neither he nor the 62-year-old Delta man driving the semi were injured in the crash, but the collision punctured the gas tank on the truck.

Traffic slowed to a crawl along Sumas Way, as crews cleared the vehicles from the scene and mopped up spilled diesel.

Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and the Abbotsford Police Department were on the scene.
