Flying car crashes into mini-van

A car flipped over a median and slammed into another vehicle.

A car flew through the air and landed on another vehicle Monday morning on Langley’s 200th Street during rush hour.

One man was taken to hospital with broken bones, while the other driver now faces charges, police say.

At 7:20 a.m., a silver Nissan was heading south in the 6900 block of 200th Street, said Cpl. Holly Largy.

According to witnesses, the car lost control and collided with the central median, sending its front wheels flying into the air. Its back wheels also hit the median and the car was almost vertical for a moment.

It then slammed down onto the hood of a mini-van heading north on 200th Street.

The mini-van driver was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster with broken bones.

The Nissan drriver, a 23-year-old from Coquitlam, suffered scrapes and bruises. He had been driving the car without insurance, Largy said.

The Nissan driver was arrested and RCMP are recommending he be charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm. He is expected to appear in court on March 4.

Both cars are also being mechanically inspected, said Largy.
