Motorist killed in single vehicle crash

Icy roads may have played a role in accident on 256 Street

A 25-year-old man has died in a single vehicle crash in rural south Aldergrove.

The driver, who has not yet been named, was on his way to work when the mishap occurred on Thursday morning in the 2300 block of 256 Street, said Cpl. Holly Marks, who speaks for Langley RCMP.

There was no one else in the vehicle, a black Chevrolet Aveo which was travelling south on 256 Street when it apparently veered to the right, slid down an embankment before coming to rest against a tree.

ICARS (Integrated Collision Analyst Reconstruction Service) was called in to help the Langley detachment’s traffic section with the investigation.

Investigators are exploring the possibility that speed and road conditions were instrumental in the crash, which occurred between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m.

Marks said that 256 Street was  closed between 16 and 24 Avenues for several hours.

The man’s next of kin have been notified and have been offered the services of the Langley Client Support and Victim Services.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604 532-3200.
