Car lands on roof in Langley farmer’s field

Car fails to negotiate S-curve, landing vehicle on its roof and occupants in hospital.

A mother and child were taken to hospital by ambulance with minor injuries after a rollover crash Sunday afternoon in Langley’s Milner neighbourhood.

Emergency crew arrived to find a white Pontiac Sunfire flipped over on its top, and the occupants out of the vehicle in the 21500-block of 64th Avenue.

It’s believed the car failed to negotiate an S-curve, causing it smash through a fence, roll up onto an embankment, and land on its roof, witnesses said.

All the occupants of the vehicle had managed to get out on their own before emergency responders from Langley Township Fire Department arrived, said assistant chief Bruce Ferguson.

A mother and her four-year-old child were transported to hospital by ambulance, Ferguson said, but their injuries were not considered life threatening.

Firefighters responded to another crash on Sunday afternoon as well, when three vehicles collided at 196th Street and Fraser Highway, said Ferguson.

One person suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital by ambulance.
