Langley crash kills Abbotsford woman, injures Surrey man

Sunday morning collision at Fraser Highway and Langley Bypass



An Abbotsford woman died in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Fraser Highway and the Langley Bypass Sunday morning (July 14).

The 20-year-old woman was at the wheel of a Honda Civic sedan that collided with a Cadillac Escalade SUV at 6:50 a.m.

A written statement issued by the Langley RCMP said the Civic was traveling north on Fraser Highway and the Escalade traveling east on the Langley Bypass.

It appears that the Escalade was proceeding through the intersection on a green light when the collision occurred, the RCMP said.

The woman was extricated from the wreckage by emergency crews, but died later in hospital.

The driver of the Escalade, a 69 year old Surrey man, was released from hospital after he was treated for what police described as relatively minor injuries.

The bypass was closed for several hours between Fraser and 200 Street while police accident investigation experts went over the crash scene.

RCMP said the exact cause of the collision has yet to be determined but speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors. Both vehicles will be undergoing mechanical inspections.

Anyone who witnessed the collision and has not yet spoken to police is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
