UPDATED: Two injured in crash in North Langley


Two people were taken away by ambulance after three cars collided at a busy Langley street corner Thursday morning.

The crash took place at around 11:30 a.m. at the corner of 208th Street and 80th Avenue. The collision involved a red sedan, a blue light pickup truck, and a white SUV. A fourth vehicle was stopped near the wreck, but was not visibly damaged.

Langley Township firefighters responded to the scene along with RCMP officers and BC Ambulance paramedics.

The ambulance paramedics took away two people on stretchers, both of whom were taken to Langley Memorial Hospital for x-rays, said Cpl. Patrick Davies of the Langley RCMP.

Both victims were up and talking after the crash, and it isn’t thought they have any broken bones, but first responders wanted to be certain, said Davies.

There was no sign that the crash was caused by impaired driving by any of the participants.

Paramedics had the crash victims sit in the shade of the sign for a church on the northwest side of the corner to keep them out of the sun while checking them out, before transport to hospital.

RCMP officers interviewed witnesses amidst the wreckage at the site, and they are still trying to determine the exact cause of the crash.

By shortly after 12:30, the cars were being towed or driven away, but before that traffic was backed up as drivers were being squeezed into single lanes each way to get around the debris and damaged cars.
