A serious collision occurred late this morning when an ambulance collided into a CP Rail freight train running through Langley.
According to RCMP, the incident happened just before 11:30 a.m. at 216 Street and Glover Road. All roads in the area area closed in all directions and two air ambulances were deployed to the scene.
One paramedic in the rear of the vehicle was transported to hospital in stable condition while another patient who was airlifted out of the area is suffering from life-threatening injuries. There were no injuries to anyone onboard the train.
At the time, the train was traveling northbound and because of its length, the Langley Bypass at Glover Road is also closed to vehicle traffic.
CN Rail staff are at the site of the incident to assist with the investigation being conducted by the RCMP’s Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service.
