Langley RCMP say alcohol is believed to be a factor in a crash that killed a 24-year-old Langley man early Thursday morning.

Mounties say just after midnight a Ford Escort, driving southbound in the 7700-block of 200 Street, crossed into the oncoming lanes and collided with a northbound Mazda 3.

The Mazda, driven by a 30-year-old Langley woman was damaged on the front end while the Escort was hit on the passenger side.

The 24-year-old man was a passenger in the Escort and died at the scene.

The two drivers were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

RCMP say they believe alcohol is a factor in the collision and possibly the slick road conditions.

Investigators will apply for a warrant for blood samples for the driver of the Escort, a 28-year-old Langley man.
