One person was taken to hospital after a late Monday afternoon crash resulted in a rollover in Langley Township on 16 Avenue.

Langley RCMP said a Chrysler Sebring driven by a 39-year-old from Richmond and a Ford Flex driven by a 63-year-old from Mexico with three family members as passengers collided at the intersection of 16 Avenue and 240 Street at 5:15 p.m.
