The female driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the logging truck was not injured.
A nearby power pole was knocked down as a result of the incident and BC Hydro had to turn power off to allow traffic investigators into the scene.
Fraser Valley Traffic Services, with support from the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service are currently investigating. Lougheed Hwy between Mount Woodside and Mission is currently closed in both directions and not expected to reopen for another six to seven hours.
Motorists are asked to avoid the area at this time.
