Two walk away unscathed from violent crash on 208 Street

Two drivers involved in a violent crash at 208 Street and Grade Crescent on Wednesday night were lucky to walk away unscathed as debris from the one flipped vehicle scattered across the road.

According to the Langley RCMP, a black Chrysler Crossfire, driven by a 22-year-old man, was heading south on 208 Street at a high rate of speed.

A white Ford Explorer was travelling eastbound, attempting a right turn onto 208 Street from Grade Crescent and into the path of the Crossfire.

The Crossfire flipped on impact. The sound of the crash drew dozens of neighbours to see the crash. Langley RCMP confirm that the driver of the Crossfire was issued a speeding ticket and the 61-year-old female driver of the Explorer was given a ticket for failing to yield after a stop, said Const. Craig van Herk.

The Grade Crescent corner at 208 Street has long been considered a dangerous corner by residents in the area, with concerns about congestion and students walking to and from H.D. Stafford Middle School.
