Two people were taken to hospital last Friday after four vehicles crashed into each other in Maple Ridge.

Ridge Meadows RCMP said a car travelling west on Dewdney Trunk Road was stopped behind a taxi, which was waiting to make a left-turn when it was rear-ended.

Police said the “chain-reaction” crash involved four vehicles and was set off by a woman driving a white GMC SUV.

It took place around 6 p.m. Dec. 27 on Dewdney Trunk Road, near 206th Street, outside the Keg.

The second vehicle in the pile up – a red car – bore the brunt of the impact.

Firefighters had to cut off the car’s roof to remove a passenger. He was taken to hospital.

The woman driving the white SUV was ticketed under the Motor Vehicle Act for driving without due care and attention.
