Two-car crash claims life on 16th Ave.

A 79-year-old woman died after being airlifted to hospital.

A crash on 16th Avenue Friday morning proved fatal, and Langley RCMP are investigating the cause.

An eastbound pickup truck collided with a northbound Dodge Caravan at the intersection of 224th Street and 16th Avenue just before 10 a.m., said Cpl. Holly Largy.

The 79-year-old driver of the Caravan was airlifted to hospital, but later died, Largy confirmed.

The pickup driver was taken to hospital by ambulance for injuries that are not considered life threatening, Largy said.

The entire intersection will be closed for much of the day Friday as the ICARS investigative team goes over the site.

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