UPDATE: Elderly man remains in hospital after Lougheed crash

Air ambulance landed at Kanaka Creek elementary in Maple Ridge.

An elderly man remains in hospital after the passenger side of a vehicle was T-boned along Lougheed Highway in Maple Ridge on Thursday.

An air ambulance was called at approximately 4:20 p.m. Thursday to transport the seriously injured 70-year-old to hospital, using the field at nearby Kanaka elementary to land.

Ridge Meadows RCMP Sgt. Brenda Gresuik said the initial investigation shows a vehicle was eastbound on Lougheed Highway, making a left-hand turn into oncoming traffic at Tamarack Lane, when it was struck on the passenger side by a westbound vehicle.

There were also minor injuries to the drivers of both cars, she said.

The collision sent one of the vehicles into a light standard near the intersection at Tamarack Lane.
