Editor: On Monday (March 19),  at 6:25 p.m., I witnessed a car accident on 203 Street in Langley, right in front of the Guys ’n Gals Hair Salon and beside the Army & Navy.

The van crashed on 203 Street, between the crosswalk in front of an apartment building, and smashed into a fire hydrant and broke a “no left turn” sign. Fortunately no one was injured.

The driver was a middle-aged man.

I reported the accident to 911 immediately and within reasonable time the City of Langley’s fire department and Langley RCMP came along to assist and do their job.

The emergency team was calm and efficient. The fire department made the call to a towing truck company to come and pick up the damaged van so traffic could keep moving.

I would like to thank the City of Langley’s EMS team for doing great work.

Thanks to the public for remaining calm.
