Crash pushes Langley driver into pedestrian
A 23-year-old Langley woman was involved in a serious Sept. 1 collision in Vancouver that has left a pedestrian fighting for his life.
Vancouver Police believe alcohol was a factor in the crash which saw two cars collide at the intersection at Main Street and 12 Avenue around 1 a.m. on Sunday.
The VPD said one of those vehicles, driven by the Langley woman, veered onto on the sidewalk after the collision, striking a 38-year-old man who was standing there.
A 49-year-old Vancouver woman was driving the other car. Both women were taken to hospital with minor injuries and have since been released.
Investigators say one of the vehicles ran a red light to cause the crash.
The man’s injuries have been described as life-threatening.
VPD Const. Brian Montague said the victim is still unconscious suffering with spinal, chest and head injuries.
Police haven’t indicated which driver may have been drinking.
“The investigation is still ongoing,” said Montague.
