Langley RCMP said impaired driving may have been a factor in a three-vehicle crash that closed 56th Avenue in Langley between 240th and 248th streets Sunday afternoon, March 26.

Around 4:30 p.m., a westbound 2014 Scion struck the curb in 24300 block of 56th Avenue, then crossed the lane into the path of two other cars, a Jetta and a Hyundai.

Traffic was diverted from 56th Avenue for about an hour after fire, ambulance, and police units were called.

A police report said none of the injuries appeared serious and no one required transport to hospital.

“Alcohol may have been a factor,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Craig van Herk.

Since this story was published, one of the drivers involved in the crash contacted the Langley Advance Times to advise they suffered a painful lower back injury and was transported by ambulance to hospital.
