A 65-year-old Langley man is being investigated for impaired driving after he crashed his vintage Ford convertible, causing it to erupt in flames on Sunday.

Emergency responders were called at around

1 a.m. to the 22800 block of Old Yale Road for the crash.

The old-style roadster was engulfed in flames and two passengers had been injured in the crash but managed to get out before the fire.

The driver and his 52-year-old female passenger were both taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Township firefighters put out the car fire but the vehicle was destroyed.

Langley RCMP confirm that a sample of the driver’s blood was taken for analysis to identify if alcohol played a role and whether impaired driving charges will be recommended.
