File # 2017-36687

Sadly, a young man lost his life this weekend in a single vehicle collision in the 10100 block of 208th Street.

Just before the 4:30 Sunday morning, a southbound 2008 Mercedes with four occupants traveling at an extremely high rate of speed on 208th Street went airborne off the west side of the road. The Mercedes hit the retaining wall in a culvert.

The three passengers exited the vehicle with very minor injuries. The 17 year old Langley driver (male), who was not wearing his seatbelt, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The passengers ranged in age from 15 to 20 years old. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the collision.

ICARS attended the scene to assist Langley RCMP Traffic Services with the investigation.  Langley RCMP Client Support and Victim Services were engaged to provide any and all necessary support to the passengers and families impacted by this tragedy.

We can only encourage parents to sit down with their young drivers and discuss the deadly consequences of speeding, alcohol and their relative inexperience as a driver.
