One person is dead and three others are injured after a truck crossed the centre line on Fraser Highway in Otter Saturday afternoon.
Police were called to the collision at approximately 2:15 Saturday afternoon near 244th Street on Fraser Hwy.
The collision involved three vehicles â€“ a pickup truck, a minivan and a Toyota Echo.
â€œIt is believed the pickup truck with itâ€™s lone occupant driver was eastbound on Fraser Highway when it crossed the centre line and collided with a second vehicle which then collided with a third,â€ said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks.
â€œThe driver of the pickup truck is being transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries as are one occupant from each of the other two vehicles,â€ Marks said soon after the crash. â€œThe second occupant of the passenger car is deceased at the scene.â€
The victim in the Toyota was a 52-year-old Langley man, Marks said. He had been driving.
Most of the other people injured in the crash have now been released from the hospital, although the 33-year-old woman who was driving the mini-van remains in care with non-life threatening injuries.
Alcohol has been ruled out as a possible casue of the crash. Police are now considering the possibility that a pre-existing medical condition may have been an issue.
To help determine exactly what happened, police are looking to speak to two women who may have witnessed the crash.
The first is Caucasian, in her 30s, and was a new customer at the nearby beauty salon. She did not remain to speak with investigators.
The second was a nurse or first responder of some sort and was helping with first aid in the immediate aftermath of the collision. She also left before giving a statement to the police.
Either woman, or any other witness who has not come forward, is being asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
Langley Traffic called in ICARS (Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service) to assist with the investigation.
The section of Fraser Highway between 240th and 244th Streets was temporarily closed for the investigation.
