Icy roads suspected cause of fatal crash

25-year-old Langley man on his way to work was killed in the single-vehicle crash in the 2300-block of 256 Street, Thursday morning.

A 25-year-old Langley man was on his way to work when he was killed in the single-vehicle crash in the 2300-block of 256 Street, Thursday morning.

Langley RCMP believe speed and road conditions may have been a factor in the crash. Roads were icy at the time.

Sometime between 5 and 7 a.m., the black Chevrolet Aveo was southbound on 256 Street when it went off road to the right, down an embankment and came to rest against a tree.

Cpl. Holly Marks, who speaks for Langley RCMP, said calls about the crash began coming into the attachment at around 7 a.m.

256 Street was closed between 16 and 24 Avenues for several hours as ICARS (Integrated Collision Analyst Reconstruction Service) attended to assist with the investigation.

Next of kin notifications have been made to the family of the lone male occupant, said police. Langley Client Support and Victim Services have been engaged and are providing any needed support to his family.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
