Three people have been sent to hospital following a two-vehicle collision shortly after noon in Maple Ridge.
The collision occurred just west of the roundabout where 132 Avenue intersects with 232 Street.
A landing zone was being prepared at nearby Maple Ridge Park to airlift crash victims to a nearby hospital, but it was cancelled, and patients were sent to hospital by ground.
