VIDEO: Driver ticketed for rollover crash that closed 56 Avenue in Langley (updated)

Van ends up on side after collision with sedan

A two-vehicle crash on 56 Avenue at the 240 Street intersection in Langley left a minivan flipped on its side Saturday morning.

Police said a VW sedan heading northbound on 240 Street apparently failed to stop and collided with a westbound Pontiac minivan around 9 a.m.

Three children in the van were shaken up but otherwise uninjured.

A paramedic could be observed comforting one of the kids by handing them a plush Dalmatian toy that was wearing a fire helmet.

56 Avenue was closed to traffic while police, fire and ambulance were on the scene.

The driver of the VW, a 57-year-old Langley woman, was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention.

The ticket carries a fine of $368 plus six points that will add $300 in Driver Penalty Point (DPP) premiums.

There were also some ducks and chicken in the minivan, and one duck did not survive, the police report noted.
