UPDATED: Serious collision closes 16 Avenue

Investigators from Langley RCMP Traffic Services and ICARS are currently on the scene of a serious collision in 26700-block of 16 Ave.

Investigators from Langley RCMP Traffic Services and ICARS are currently on the scene of a serious collision in the 26700-block of 16 Avenue.

Police were called just after noon today to investigate a collision between a Camaro and a pickup truck.

Witnesses advise the Camaro was eastbound on 16 Avenue and appeared to be traveling at the speed limit. The westbound pickup truck spun sideways and entered the oncoming lane. It is not known if road conditions contributed to this event.

The Camaro’s driver unsuccessfully attempted to avoid the collision and T-boned the pickup truck. The car caught on fire but fortunately the three occupants were all able to exit the vehicle on their own. The adult male driver, female passenger and toddler were all transported to hospital by ground ambulance for treatment of their non life-threatening injuries.

Of the three adult male occupants of the pickup truck, one passenger was uninjured, one was taken to hospital by BC Ambulance and the driver was taken to hospital by Air Ambulance with what are believed to be life-threatening injuries.

It is not known at this time what caused the pickup truck to swerve into the oncoming lane or if, in fact, speed was a factor.  Police will continue their investigation and endeavour to determine the cause.

In order to conduct this investigation safely, 16 Avenue has been closed from 264 to 272 Street. Motorists are encouraged to plan alternate routes through the South Langley area.

Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or those with information that would assist with this investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
