RCMP are looking for a young man who robbed a Booster Juice in Maple Ridge on Wednesday.

A 28-year-old Maple Ridge man in serious condition in hospital after a car went into a water-filled ditch just before 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Police don’t believe the man was an occupant in the car, but was trapped underneath it, in the 23300-block of Dogwood Avenue, near the Blacksheep Pub.

“This left him in the water until the Maple Ridge Fire Department was able to use airbags to lift the car enough to get the victim out,” said RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.

The driver of the car, a 29-year-old Maple Ridge man, and a female passenger have been interviewed by police, who continue to investigate.

The injured man was airlifted to hospital.
