Fatal crash near highway on-ramp in Langley

A 54-year-old Abbotsford man died Tuesday morning in Langley when his small car collided with a large truck near the 72 Avenue on-ramp to the Trans-Canada Highway.

Langley RCMP said around 4:30 a.m. officers were dispatched to a two-vehicle head-on collision involving an eastbound refrigeration truck and a westbound Chevy Sprint.

The small car suffered what was described as substantial damage to the driver’s side.

The driver and only occupant of the Sprint was pronounced dead at the scene.

Initial information suggests the Chevy Sprint may have crossed the center line, police said.

Highway 10 was expected to remain closed to all traffic from 232 Street and Highway 10 to Glover Road and Springbrook Road until noon.

Anyone with information that might assist police with this investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
