Langley firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to extract a driver trapped inside his mangled car following a serious crash at the the intersection of 264 Street and 56 Avenue on Tuesday night.
Just before 8 p.m., a 21-year-old man in a Toyota Tacoma was driving eastbound on 56 Avenue when it is believed he drove through a red light, colliding with a Subaru Impreza that was northbound on 264 Street. Witnesses to the collision told police that the traffic light was green for northbound traffic. At the time of the collision it was raining quite heavily and it was very dark, said Langley RCMP.
The force of the crash sent the Impreza into a light standard.
The male driver of the Impreza was taken by air ambulance for treatment and is now in stable condition. The driver of the Toyota was transported by ground ambulance for treatment of his minor injuries. Both men were alone in their respective vehicles.
The intersection was closed to traffic for sometime.
Both vehicles were towed and will undergo mechanical inspections.
Charges may be considered for the 21-year-old driver of the Tacoma, said police.
