A man is dead and two women are injured after a multi-vehicle crash in Langley Monday night.

Cpl. Holly Marks said an unknown vehicle that did not remain at the scene was stopped at Robertson Crescent and 264 Street to turn left at around 5 p.m.

A Chevrolet commercial van slowed behind the vehicle to stop, but a Nissan Rogue swerved to avoid rear ending the van, hit it and travelled into the southbound lane.

The Rogue then hit a Toyota Tacoma head-on and the 87-year-old driver of the Nissan died instantly. The driver’s spouse, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The 44-year-old woman driving the Tacoma was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but is expected to recover.

The two men in the van were uninjured.

Marks said the man who died was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash. She said it’s possible that wearing it could have saved his life.
