Updated: Woman injured in Langley car crash

A 71-year-old woman from White Rock had to be transported to hospital by an air ambulance helicopter following a two-car collision in the City of Langley late Wednesday morning (Dec. 14).

The senior suffered what were described as non-life-threatening abdominal injuries when the Honda she was driving was t-boned by a Lincoln at the intersection of Fraser Highway and 208 Street around 11:39 a.m.

The driver of the Lincoln, a 40-year-old Langley woman, reportedly suffered minor face and wrist injuries.

Air bags in both cars were triggered.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts.

The driver of the Honda, which suffered extensive damage to the driver's side, had to be extricated by rescue crews using the Jaws of Life device to remove her door.

The crash caused extensive damage to the front end of the Lincoln.

Police blocked off 208 Street south of the intersection to allow the helicopter to land.

Langley RCMP are looking for witnesses to the crash.

Anyone who has not been interviewed by police is asked to contact the detachment at 604-532-3200.
