Two people are dead and a third person is in critical condition following a Saturday night (Dec. 17) collision involving three vehicles at 216th Street and 80th Avenue in Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood.
It happened around 10 p.m.
Langley RCMP said one vehicle, a BMW sedan, was waiting at the intersection when a Jeep approached from behind at a high rate of speed and clipped it, sending the SUV into the intersection where it crashed into a Hyundai sedan that was just entering 216th Street and 80th Avenue.
Multiple police, fire and ambulance crews responded to find the SUV on its side, and heavy damage to the Hyundai.
The driver of the Jeep, a 37-year-old woman from Langley, and the driver of the Hyundai, a 58-year-old Langley man, were pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger in the Hyundai, a 53-year-old woman, was transported to hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.
The occupants of the BMW did not suffer serious injuries.
Langley RCMP Staff Sgt. Brock Rayworth said “speed and alcohol were possible factors” in the crash.
