A man has a broken leg and a woman is undergoing psychological tests after a head-on collision in Abbotsford.
RCMP Insp. Tim Shields said the crash happened just before 9 a.m. Sunday in the westbound lanes of Hwy. 1 at the Mount Lehman overpass.
Shields said a Volkswagen Beetle was travelling east in the westbound lanes and hit another car head-on.
The 29-year-old Abbotsford man driving the westbound car was airlifted to hospital with a broken leg and injured knees.
The driver of the Beetle, a 36-year-old Langley woman, suffered minor injuries. Police said in a news release that it appears the woman â€œwas aware of what she was doing at the time of the collision. Witnesses state the Beetle did not swerve to avoid the collision.â€
She was admitted to a hospital and is undergoing a psychological assessment.
Cars headed westbound Sunday were being diverted from the accident scene, using off-ramps, police said.
