UPDATE: No serious injuries in dramatic crash involving Langley school bus

No kids were on board the bus that was rear-ended at a stop light at 32 Avenue and 200 Street on Tuesday.

No one was seriously injured after a vehicle became pinned underneath a school bus that was waiting at a red light at 200 Street and 32 Avenue on Tuesday.



No serious injuries came out of a dramatic rear-end crash involving a Langley school bus in Brookswood on Tuesday.

Miraculously, the 51-year-old Langley woman driving the Toyota car has only minor injuries after the vehicle’s front end became pinned underneath a school bus around noon.

There were no students on board when the Toyota rear-ended the southbound school bus as it slowed for a red light at 200 Street and 32 Avenue.

The car went under the back of the bus and became pinned.  Of the three occupants in the vehicle, two were able to exit uninjured, however the driver remained trapped for a short time while Township firefighters worked to get the person out.  She was freed from the vehicle and taken to hospital for treatment of what are believed to be minor injuries, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. Three ambulances waited near the scene, as it looked like there would be more injuries involved.

The driver of the school bus, a 60-year-old Langley man, was uninjured but obviously shaken up.  Langley RCMP Client Support and Victim Services are providing their assistance.

It’s believed the driver of the Toyota didn’t see the bus stop for the light and didn’t have time to break before she slammed into the bus. Speed or alcohol don’t appear to be factors.

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