Head-on crash on 16 Avenue sends one to hospital
A 25-year-old Langley man was sent to hospital with internal injuries after a head-on crash on 16 Avenue on Wednesday evening.
Just before 7 p.m. Langley RCMP was called to a head on collision in the 20700 block of 16 Avenue.
A westbound Ford F350 pickup collided head on with a eastbound GMC pickup, said police.
The collision took place in the eastbound lane.
"It is possible the F350 swerved to miss a vehicle exiting a driveway onto 16 Avenue," said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.
The driver of the GMC, a 25 year old Langley man, suffered internal injuries and was taken to hospital by ambulance. The F350 was occupied by a 38-year-old Langley man and his 10-year-old son. They did not incur any injuries.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene and will be subject to mechanical inspections. ICARS (Integrated Collision Analyst Reconstruction Service) attended and is assisting Langley Traffic Section and general duty with the investigation, said Marks.
Witnesses at the scene told police there were two vehicles stopped to assist the people involved in the collision but they left before police could interview them. It is possible they may have actually witnessed the crash, said Marks. Police are asking anyone with information that might assist with this investigation to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
