VIDEO: Crash blocks road to Aldergrove border crossing

Multiple vehicles involved

Police, paramedics and firefighters were called to the scene of a multi-vehicle crash on 264 Street, the road that leads to the Aldergrove border crossing in Langley near the 24 Avenue intersection around 8:30 Monday morning.

Debris from two of the vehicles involved, a pickup truck towing a trailer and an SUV, was strewn along the street.

Initial reports from the scene suggested one person had been trapped in a vehicle.

Two ambulances were on the scene, but the extent of injuries was not immediately known.

Traffic on 264 between 16 and 24 Avenues was initially restricted to a single lane, then blocked off altogether while accident investigators went over the crash site.

Area resident Geoff Bardal, who lives on 264 Street not far from the intersection, heard the “all-too-familiar” sound of a large truck braking just before the sound of the crash.

“We hear the brakes screeching almost every weekend, Bardal told the Times.

“There have been deaths on that corner.”

He said speeding is contributing to the hazard, with drivers going well over the limit heading to and from the Aldergrove border crossing.

He would like to see some form of warning lights on 264 in addition to the stop signs on 24 to let drivers in a hurry know they are approaching an intersection.
