Head on crash ejects man from vehicle in Langley

Three people were hospitalized after the collision on 200th Street Monday.

Three people were taken to hospital and two remain there Tuesday morning after a Monday night collision on 200th Street.

The crash took place at 10:20 p.m. in the 8800 block of the street, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Investigators believe an Acura MDX had just come off the Trans-Canada Highway when it vaulted two concrete medians, landing in the northbound lanes of 200th.

The Acura slammed into a Ford panel van head-on, said Largy.

The passenger of the panel van was ejected from the vehicle, and the driver trapped inside until he could be rescued by emergency crews.

Several witnesses provided first aid to the victims of the crash, Largy said.

Both victims, along with the Acura driver, were taken to hospital. Their injuries are thought to be non-life threatening. Two of the men remain in hospital as of Tuesday morning.

Police believe the 54-year-old woman driving the Acura may have been impaired, and blood samples have been taken for analysis.

A collision reconstruction team along with Langley RCMP Traffic Services is investigating, and police have already spoken to several witnesses.

Anyone who has information on the crash and has not yet spoken to police is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
