A train collided with a semi tractor trailer Thursday morning in Langley, police say.
The driver apparently did not see the train while crossing the tracks, then froze when he realized he would collide with the train, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The crash reportedly took place near River Road east of Fort Langley.
The crash broke apart the semi trailer.
The driver was initially trapped in the vehicle, said Marks. He was later freed and was to be transported to hospital by Air Ambulance with life threatening injuries.
Marks said dangerous goods were not involved in the collision.
Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement will assist Langley RCMP with the investigation.
