Emergency crews responded to a multi-vehicle crash Monday evening eastbound on the Trans-Canada Highway in Langley that shut down the highway into Abbotsford.
Abbotsford and Township of Langley first responders were called to a three-vehicle collision eastbound on Highway 1, east of 264th Street around 8:30 p.m.
“It appears one vehicle rear-ended two others at high speed and ended up on its side in the ditch,” explained a witness on scene.
“Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to rescue the victim from the rolled-over vehicle.”
One person was transported by air ambulance to hospital.
The area was cleared, and the highway reopened around 11 p.m.
