Two sent to hospital after Aldergrove crash

 

A 32-year-old man suffered broken bones after a crash at a busy Aldergrove intersection on Tuesday afternoon.

Just after 5:30 p.m., a Nissan sports car slammed into a Honda mini van at the intersection of 264th Street and 56th Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The Nissan apparently drove through a red light and hit the mini-van, according to witness reports, said Marks.

“Police believe both alcohol and speed to be factors in the collision,” said Marks.

The driver of the Nissan, an Abbotsford man, left the scene with significant injuries, with suspected broken bones. He was taken to hospital for treatment, said Marks.

The woman driving the minivan was also taken to hospital, but was treated and released with comparatively minor injuries.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene of the crash and will be given mechanical inspections as part of the overall investigation.

Police still have numerous witnesses to interview and have to piece together a complete sequence of events surround the collision, said Marks.

Anyone who saw the crash, but has not yet spoken to police, is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
