Abbotsford woman killed in crash in Langley

A 20-year-old Abbotsford woman was killed in a crash Sunday morning in Langley.

The collision took place at about 6:50 a.m. at the intersection of Fraser Highway and the Langley Bypass.

RCMP say the woman was travelling north on Fraser Highway in a Honda Civic when she collided with an eastbound Cadillac Escalade being driven by a 69-year-old Surrey man.

Police say it appears that the Escalade was proceeding through the intersection on a green light.

BC Ambulance and the Langley City Fire Rescue Service were immediately called to the scene, but the woman was pronounced dead. Her name has not been released.

The driver of the Escalade was taken to hospital with minor injuries and released.

No other people were involved in the crash.

RCMP say the cause of the crash has yet to be confirmed, but neither alcohol nor speed appear to be factors. Both vehicles were towed from the scene and will undergo mechanical inspections.

Anyone who witnessed the collision and has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
