A floor mat may have caused a crash that sent one truck tumbling onto its roof in Langleyâ€™s North Otter area Tuesday afternoon.
At about 4:20 p.m., a large pickup truck apparently ran a stop sign at 250th and 56th Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The large truck, a brand new 2015 GMC Denali, slammed into a slightly smaller Dodge pickup that was heading west on 56th.
The Denali slammed into the passenger side of the Dodge and rolled it off the road, leaving a trail of debris across the street.
Both vehicles suffered major damage.
Fortunately, no one in either vehicle was seriously hurt in the crash.
No one suffered more than minor injuries, said Marks.
The driver of the Dodge that rolled over suffered a scrape to one arm and didnâ€™t even bother to go to hospital. His female passenger was taken to hospital, checked out, and released the same day.
The investigation into the causes of the crash is ongoing, said Marks. So far, it appears that an after-market floor mat installed on the driverâ€™s side of the Denali may be at fault. The mat may have somehow impeded the driverâ€™s ability to hit the brakes at the stop sign.
Police are reminding everyone that when buying any after market parts for a vehicle, make sure that safety equipment such as brake pedals can still function properly.
