One person has been airlifted to hospital after a serious head-on collision on 240 Street just south of Robertson Crescent in Langley.

There were two people involved in the accident, which was reported shortly after noon today (July 21) — one in each vehicle — and only one person was injured, Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Largy told the Times.

A man in his 60s was airlifted to hospital with multiple injuries and is in “quite serious condition,” Largy said.

The other driver, a 75-year-old man from Langley, was taken to Langley Memorial Hospital as a precaution with minor injuries.

Roads are expected to be closed for another three to four hours, and motorists are asked to consider alternate routes for travel.
