Aldergrove crash on Boxing Day sends one to hospital

Vehicles ended up in ditch

One person was rushed to hospital following a Saturday afternoon crash (Dec. 26) in Aldergrove.

Around 1:30pm Boxing Day, Township of Langley crews responded to reports of a serious MVA at 256th St & 16th Ave.

They arrived to find that an SUV had t-boned a sedan in the intersection and the force of the crash sent both vehicles into the ditch and left the SUV on its side.

Crews worked quickly to stabilize the SUV and used multiple extrication tools to remove the roof from the sedan and extricate the driver.

BCAS crews worked to stabilize the patient for an extended period of time at the scene before transporting via air ambulance to a local trauma centre.

It appeared the driver of the SUV escaped with minor injuries.
