An Abbotsford man was declared dead in hospital Sunday after he suffered a medical emergency and crashed in Langley City.
The driver had just come off the 203rd Street overpass and turned east on 62nd Avenue at about 3 p.m., said Const. Craig Van Herk of the Langley RCMP.
The man suffered some form of medical issue and his car veered through the westbound lane of the road, eventually coming to rest against a building.
Fortunately, traffic was light and the man didn't hit any other vehicles or pedestrians.
He was airlifted to hospital and pronounced dead there. The crash did not actually cause him serious injury, and it's though the medical issues were the main cause of death, said Van Herk.
The man was just 57 years old, said Van Herk. Another serious crash took place on Friday when two Hondas collided in the 22400 block of 56th Avenue.
One car landed in the ditch after the collision, and two adults and two children inside were all taken to hospital. The driver is believed to have suffered a broken bone, a male passenger had facial injuries, and both children had non-life threatening injuries. They were wearing seatbelts at the time, said Van Herk.
The cause of the collision is under investigation, but alcohol and speed are not believed to have cause it.
