VIDEO: Driver suffers serious injuries in Highway 1 crash near Langley-Surrey border

Crash involved SUV and semi-truck just west of 200 Street.

One person was sent to hospital with what police called “life-threatening injuries” Saturday morning after an eastbound vehicle collided with a semi-trailer truck that had apparently broken down on Hwy. 1 just before the 200 Street overpass in Langley around 6 a.m.

As of Monday, RCMP Const. Mike Halskov said, the injured driver remained in hospital.

The truck driver was uninjured.

The crash left the eastbound lanes of the freeway closed for most of the morning.,

Port Mann Traffic Services and the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service are investigating the cause of the crash, Const. Halskov said.

Anyone with information who has not already spoken to police is asked to call Port Mann Traffic Services at 604-526-9744.

It appeared that a Toyota Highlander SUV and a semi-truck were involved in the collision.
