A Langley woman was taken to hospital by air ambulance after crashing into another vehicle at the intersection of 240 Street and 56 Avenue early this morning.

Around 5:30 a.m., a northbound Cobalt collided with an eastbound Ford Explorer.

The investigation suggests the driver of the Cobalt, the Langley woman, didn’t stop at the stop sign, said Langley RCMP.

The front end of the Cobalt crashed into the Explorer’s passenger side.

The female driver was trapped inside her vehicle unresponsive but breathing, with bleeding from her head, said Langley Township fire department’s Bruce Ferguson.

Township firefighters secured a landing site for an air ambulance to touch down on 52 Avenue, he said.

The male driver of the Explorer was driven by ground ambulance where he has been treated and released.

Police continue to investigate and anticipate the Cobalt driver will be issued a violation ticket.
