One vehicle was traveling at 120 km an hour when it slammed into a pickup truck on the Langley Bypass early Sunday morning.
The crash took place at about 12:30 a.m. and witnesses told RCMP investigators that a Chrysler 200 was speeding eastbound on 56th, drove through a red light, and slammed into the southbound Toyota Tacoma.
The Tacoma driver was not injured, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The Tacoma was moving so fast that after the collision, it spun, struck a BC Hydro pole, and came to rest a block away from the site of the original impact.
The driver of the Chrysler 200 was knocked unconscious by the crash and was taken to the hospital. The 19-year-old Surrey resident was released later Sunday morning.
Largy said investigators are looking into whether alcohol was a factor, and applied for a warrant to obtain blood samples from the driver.
The Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS) was on scene to help assess the crash.
Several witnesses stayed at the scene to speak to police, but if there are any witnesses who have not yet spoken to officers, they are being asked to come forward.
Anyone with information can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
