Witnesses to 248 St. crash sought by Langley RCMP

Police seek witnesses to three-car crash Wednesday night.

Langley RCMP are looking for witnesses to a serious three-car collision that may have been caused by a drunk driver on the night of Wednesday, April 24.

Around 8:30 p.m., the driver of a white Ford flat deck was travelling south on 248 Street near Saddlehorn Crescent. Witnesses told police the flat deck, driven by a 35-year-old Langley man, swerved into the oncoming lane where a 19-year-old driver of a northbound Mazda attempted to move out of harm’s way, said police. The Mazda still clipped the flat deck truck, causing that Mazda to roll into a deep embankment.

A 32-year-old woman with her young son in the back seat, travelling behind the Mazda in a Dodge Neon, was unable to avoid the head-on collision.  She was transported to hospital by Air Ambulance, and suffered a severe cut to her ankle. Her son was unharmed.

When emergency crews arrived on the scene, the woman was being helped by civilians, said police. The white flat deck truck was partially in the ditch with the driver lying nearby on the ground. He was also being tended to.  The teen driver whose vehicle rolled down an embankment sustained minor injuries.

The Integrated Collision Analyst Reconstruction Service investigated the scene and mechanical inspections will be completed on all three vehicles.

Police obtained blood samples that will be analyzed for alcohol content and charges could be recommended to Crown counsel once the results are returned.

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or the driving pattern of the Ford flat deck truck prior to the collision. Specifically, police are looking for an individual who assisted the suspect as he exited his truck. Witnesses are asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
