One in cardiac arrest after crash in Maple Ridge

Emergency services still on scene

A woman was taken to hospital in cardiac arrest Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 9, after a crash in Maple Ridge.

The accident happened just before 4:30 p.m. just south of the corner of 228 Street and Lougheed Highway and involved a grey Volkswagen sedan and a black Toyota pickup.

Witnesses say the truck was in the eastbound lane of Lougheed Highway turning right onto 228 Street and the sedan was travelling westbound along Lougheed turning left when they collided.

Two people were in the sedan where an elderly female on the passenger side had to be extricated.

The patient was transported to hospital about 20 minutes after she was removed from the vehicle.

One person was in the truck

It is unknown, at this time, if there were other injuries.
