Motorists are advised to exercise caution as weather conditions have led to icy roads in the Fraser Valley.

Langley RCMP Traffic Section got an early start Tuesday morning when they responded to a number of collisions attributed to the road conditions.

Sadly, one of the collisions will likely result in a fatality. The call came in to police shortly before 6 a.m., Feb. 11.

Preliminary investigation suggests the driver was northbound on 240 Street and was only two blocks from his home when he went off the road and flipped on to the passenger side of his pickup truck.

The road was extremely slippery and the officers on scene advised it was difficult to even stand on the roadway. Additionally, the driver was not wearing his seat belt. Due to the nearness to his residence, it is highly unlikely speed was a factor in the collision.

The 61 year old man was transported to hospital, however, he is not expected to survive his injuries, according to police. He may have sustained a medical event prior to the collision.

The RCMP’s ICARS division attended to assist with the investigation.

If you witnessed the crash and have not yet spoken to police, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Abbotsford Police attended 34 collisions between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning, and are continuing to respond to accidents.
