Three people were airlifted to hospital early on Boxing Day after a head-on collision in Langley involving an SUV traveling the wrong way on Highway 1.

Abbotsford police received multiple calls just after 3 a.m. of an SUV travelling west in the eastbound lanes. The SUV side-swiped and collided with another SUV travelling in the eastbound lane just east of the 208th Street overpass.

Two women and one man were airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Traffic was diverted from the eastbound lanes between 200th and 232nd Streets for about two hours.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Alcohol has not been ruled out as a contributing factor.
