ATV crash kills Langley woman

37-year-old was operating ATV in Sunshine Valley, east of Hope, on Saturday evening.

A Langley woman was killed on Saturday in an ATV accident east of Hope.

On June 29, at approximately 9:47 p.m., Hope RCMP, Fraser Valley Traffic Services, ICARS, and Sunshine Valley Volunteer Firefighters responded to an ATV collision on Huckleberry Road in Sunshine Valley, which is located along Highway 3 east of Hope. The ATV was operated by a 27-year-old woman from Langley, and was also transporting a 37-year-old male passenger from Surrey. The operator and passenger collided with a cable with reflective tape on it that was strung across a gravel road between two cement barriers.

Witnesses on scene heard a loud bang and noticed an ATV roll into the bushes with no persons aboard. They did not observe the collision. The witnesses rushed over to find a man and a woman lying on the ground. An off-duty firefighter provided medical assistance, but the woman soon succumbed to her injuries. The man was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“ATV’s need to be operated with extreme caution and awareness of the surrounding area, especially when driven at night,” says RCMP Const. Cynthia Kershaw.

The investigation is still ongoing.
