One person died when a small hatchback car hit a semi trailer truck in the 6900 block of Glover Road in Langley Monday night just after 10 p.m.

The hatchback was traveling northbound on Glover Road when it crossed the centre line and collided with a southbound truck near the intersection of Glover and Smith Crescent.

The car ended up in a ditch.

The driver and only occupant of the car, a 24-year-old Langley man, was declared dead at the scene.

The truck driver was unhurt, but shaken, Langley RCMP said.

The cause of the crash has not been determined.

Toxicology tests on the deceased driver and a mechanical inspection of both vehicles have been ordered.

Traffic in the area was blocked off until 8 a.m. Tuesday and resumed after both vehicles were towed and debris and fuel spills had been cleaned up.
