Three-tonne truck hits SUV near Milner


Two people were rushed to hospital after a large truck slammed into an SUV on Langley’s Springbrook Road Thursday morning.

At about 11:30 a.m., a three-tonne truck, towing a flat deck trailer with a sizeable piece of construction equipment on the back, crossed the center line.

The truck slammed head-on into a westbound SUV, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The driver of the SUV suffered chest injuries and was taken to hospital by Air Ambulance. Marks said it is believed the injuries are not life threatening.

The driver of the three-tonne truck was also taken to hospital. He may have suffered some kind of medical event just before the crash, but he was conscious and speaking at the scene.

Springbrook was closed between Glover Road and 232nd Street, with police expecting it would re-open by 5:30 p.m.

Anyone who witnessed the crash and has not spoken to investigators is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. 

The Integrated Collision Analyst Recontruction Service (ICARS) and Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement (CVSE) agencies were both on scene to help local investigators.
