LANGLEY, B.C. - A collision between a train and passenger vehicle in the Fraser Valley city of Langley, B.C., has sent a female to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks says the collision happened early Thursday evening at a railway crossing about 50 kilometres east of Vancouver.

She says witnesses reported an eastbound vehicle did not stop at a railway-crossing stop sign and was struck by a northbound train.

Marks says a female has been flown by air ambulance to hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

Police are asking motorists to consider using alternate routes to avoid extra congestion in the area.
