Langley man and Surrey woman injured in collision

A head-on two-vehicle crash in the 21200-block of 56 Avenue, near the Langley Regional Airport sent two people to hospital on Sunday afternoon (March 29th).

A 2015 Honda Pilot and a 1969 Pontiac GTO collided on 56th Avenue, between the Langley Bypass and 216th, around 4 p.m.

The Honda was driven by a 59-year-old woman from Surrey.

Police believe the GTO, driven by a 33-year-old Langley man, was traveling westbound in the oncoming lane.

“Speed and alcohol were believed to be factors in the collision,” said RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy.

The drivers were the only occupants of the vehicles.

Police, fire, and ambulance were called.

Fire crews used the jaws of life to extricate the drivers from the Pontiac and Honda.

Injuries were said to be serious.

One person was airlifted to hospital by helicopter, while the other was taken from the scene by ground ambulance.
