An 80-year-old woman was killed when her car was hit by a dump truck on a busy South Langley road.
At about 12:15 p.m. on Aug. 13, a car reportedly drove through a southbound stop sign at the intersection of 256th Street and 16th Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The westbound dump truck, which was towing a pup trailer, hit the car.
The driver of the dump truck apparently attempted to avoid the collision, and is extremely distraught, said Marks.
Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in the crash.
So far, it appears the elderly driver did not obey the stop sign, said Marks.
The Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstruction Team (ICARS) and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement (CVSE) investigators will help the Langley RCMP as they go over the accident scene and do a mechanical inspection of the truck.
Witnesses who have not yet spoken to police should call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
