Alcohol possible factor in serious crash on Glover Road

A 63-year-old man was seen driving in the oncoming lane, colliding with another vehicle on June 1.

A 63-year-old man is accused of driving erratically and then driving into oncoming traffic causing a crash on Glover Road on June 1. Alcohol may have played a role.

Alcohol may have played a role in a crash that left a 63-year-old man in critical condition Wednesday night.

Police say two vehicles collided as a man drove into oncoming traffic on Glover Road on June 1.

Shortly after 10 p.m., police were called about an erratic driver heading westbound on Highway One.

Several people called 911 to say a red Mazda RX8 was being driven erratically and had just exited the freeway at 232 St., travelling north to Rawlison Crescent, before heading south along Glover Road.

After crossing Crush Crescent, the vehicle was seen doing a U-turn and began driving in the oncoming lane, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.

The RX8 then collided with an oncoming southbound vehicle at 216 Street.

The driver of the Mazda, a 63-year-old man from Pitt Meadows, was taken to hospital with serious injuries and remains in critical condition.  The other driver, a 28-year-old Langley woman, was taken to hospital with less serious injuries.

Police continue their investigation and believe the driver of the Mazda may have been impaired at the time of the collision, said Largy.

Anyone with additional information that might assist with this investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
