Updated: Back to back crashes snarl traffic in Langley

In what was the first of two traffic accidents in the same area of Langley in about an hour, a small car and a full-size van collided at the intersection of 88 Avenue and 200 St. around 4 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 13), tying up northbound traffic heading for the freeway.

No serious injuries were reported.

Two people, the male and female occupants of the car, were taken to Langley Memorial Hospital for examination and quickly released.

Occupants of the van were not hurt.

Firefighters directed traffic while they waited for a tow truck to remove the wreckage.

Within an hour of the first crash, there was another two-vehicle collision involving a car and a semi further down 200 St. near 91 Ave. that created even more traffic congestion. There were no reported injuries in the second accident.

Both incidents were being treated as an auto insurance issue by police.

Charges were not expected.
