Four people were injured and two were taken to hospital by Air Ambulance after a crash Wednesday morning on Langleyâ€™s 16th Avenue.
The crash happened at about 9:30 a.m. and involved at least four vehicles, in the 22600 block of 16th.
Langley RCMP said a light pickup was stopped to turn left into a driveway. Another car was stopped behind the pickup. A large commercial vehicle apparently rear-ended the second car, causing a chain reaction that threw the pickup into the oncoming lane, where it hit a westbound SUV.
Two adults were taken to hospital by Air Ambulance, with the first helicopter touching down in a nearby field at about 9:40 a.m. and the second just before 10 a.m. Two more adults were taken by ground ambulance. At least some of the victims had serious injuries.
There were reports that a baby was in one of the vehicles, but apparently was not injured.
The RCMP closed 16th Avenue from 224th to 232nd for the morning.
Langley residents along 16th Avenue have complained for years that their road is too dangerous. A thoroughfare that connects from Abbotsford through to Surrey, 16th Avenue has several locations that are too narrow for the RCMP to park any cars on the sides of the road for speed traps.
Aside from collisions, there have been several incidents in recent years of vehicles veering off roads and onto residential properties.
The busy roadway reopened mid-afternoon June 10.
