Two-car collision on 16th Ave. claims one life

Police believe the crash was a rear-end incident.

Another fatal crash is being investigated on Langley’s 16th Avenue, RCMP said Thursday.

At 5:30 p.m., it appears a Dodge Ram pickup truck rear-ended a Ford Mustang at 197A Street, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Early investigation suggest the eastbound Mustange was stopped to make a left hand turn when it was rear-ended.

There were three people in the Mustang, and a male passenger in the back seat died.

The other occupants of the Mustang and the driver of the Ram were only slightly injured.

The Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS) was called out to assist with the investigation.

Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to the police are being encouraged to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Langley Township has recently re-opened the question of adding extra signal lights to some of 16th Avenue’s major intersections. Councillor Charlie Fox has also been pushing for pullout bays, which would allow police to park to catch speeders and dangerous drivers.
