Air ambulance needed twice on Sunday

Two crashes on Sunday afternoon required helicopters to transport patients.



Air ambulances were dispatched to Langley twice on Sunday afternoon after two separate vehicle collisions.

The first crash occurred at 1:40 p.m. at 56 Avenue and 200 Street. It involved three vehicles.

A Ford Escape traveling northbound on 200 Street was proceeding through a green light when it was struck by an eastbound Chrysler Sebring. The Sebring then also struck a 2011 Kia Sorento.

The force of the collision caused the Escape to roll onto its roof, trapping the driver inside.

Langley City firefighters untangled the driver, a 41-year-old woman, from the foot pedals of the vehicle and she was transported to hospital via air ambulance. Her injuries were minor.

Two others were also taken to hospital with minor injuries. No one in the Sorento was injured.

The driver of the Sebring, a 67-year-old Surrey woman, was given a ticket for failing to stop at a red light.

The second collision happened just over an hour later  at 240 Street and 48 Avenue.

A 2006 Toyota Sienna, traveling eastbound on 48 Avenue, was making a right turn onto 240 Street when it collided with a southbound 1966 Chevrolet Caprice.

The impact caused the Caprice to hit a 2005 Jeep Liberty that was parked in a driveway.

Two people were airlifted to hospital — the driver of the Sienna, a 63-year-old Langley woman, who had non life- threatening injuries and the driver of the Caprice, a 55-year-old Langley man, who had severe, but non life-threatening injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Police are seeking witnesses to the crash. Anyone with information on either collision that would assist investigators is asked to please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
