UPDATED: Three badly injured in Tuesday night crash

At least four people were sent to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries after a two-car crash at the intersection of 256 Street and Robertson Crescent on Tuesday afternoon.

Around 5:30 p.m., a red Pontiac sedan was driving eastbound on Robertson Crescent when it stopped at the stop sign. The driver proceeded into the intersection when the Pontiac was struck by a northbound black Acura SUV.

The Acura spun and hit a power pole, bringing down wires and knocking out power to around 2,500 homes in the area for about an hour.

The Pontiac was forced into a ditch. The 19-year-old driver of the Pontiac, along with her 18, 20 and 42-year-old passengers, were all rushed to hospital with various, serious injuries.

The 36-year-old driver of the Acura wasn't seriously injured.

The 42-year-old passenger remains in ICU in critical but stable conditions. The driver of the Pontiac suffered several broken bones, including a broken pelvis. The other passengers sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The three passengers are a mother and her two daughters. The mother and one of the daughters are undergoing surgeries on Thursday.

The crash is still under investigation but police don’t believe speed or alcohol were factors. It was raining heavily at the time of the crash and Robertson is a very dark road.

Om February, 2011, Coleton Nelson, 12, was killed in a crash at that same intersection. He was the passenger of a Mustang that collided with a garbage truck.

Since that time, Langley Township council has been looking at improvements to the intersection.

In December, 2012, an 87-year-old man was killed and his wife seriously injured along with a 44-year-old Langley woman in another vehicle at the intersection of Robertson Crescent and 264 Street.
