A 27-year-old Abbotsford man was airlifted to hospital following a three-car collision in Aldergrove on Saturday, Jan. 3.

Police say alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash.

The crash took place just after 1 p.m. and involved a Honda, an Acura and a Volkswagen.

Witnesses said the Volkswagen was making a left-hand turn onto 264 Street from 24 Avenue when it was hit from behind by the Honda. The Honda then spun and collided with the Acura.

All three vehicles had the drivers as the sole occupants.

The driver of the Honda, a 27-year-old Abbotsford resident, was unconscious at the scene and was airlifted to hospital.

The driver of the Volkswagen, a 33-year-old man from Pitt Meadows, was looked over at the scene by BC Ambulance while the driver of the Acura, a 26-year-old Langley man, was taken to hospital for treatment only as a precaution.

Police believe the Honda driver may have been impaired by alcohol and will follow up with a warrant for blood samples to further the investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the collision and has not spoken to police is  asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
