An Abbotsford man was involved in a head-on vehicle collision in Langley late Thursday afternoon that left a woman with serious injuries, according to police.

“The investigation suggests a male driving an eastbound GMC Sierra attempted to overtake a tractor trailer on the crest of a hill, across a double solid line,” said Cpl. Holly Largy, media relations officer with Langley RCMP.

“To further aggravate the situation, it was dark and raining with extremely low visibility,” she elaborated.

The GMC collided head-on with the Ford Tempo that was travelling westbound, which also resulted in a Chevy Silverado crashing, according to police.

Officers were called to the 26600-block of 8th Avenue around 5 p.m. to attend the multi-vehicle collision.

“The driver of the Ford sustained serious injuries and was the only one injured in the collision,” Largy said. “The driver of the GMC, a 39-year-old Abbotsford male, has been co-operative with police.”

The scene was attended by Langley’s Criminal Crash Investigative Team; the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information or video footage is asked to contact Langley RCMP 604-532-3200.
