Pedestrian hit near Upper Maple Ridge Park

Fern Crescent blocked briefly near 236th

B.C. Emergency Health Services, fire and police were on the scene of a pedestrian accident on Fern Crescent and 236nd Street, Thursday morning.

A request for a landing zone for an air ambulance had been made but was later cancelled. Traffic on Fern Crescent was blocked briefly but reopened at about 10 a.m. The extent of the injuries hasn’t yet been determined.

One resident said she’s afraid even to use a crosswalk in the area because of motorists speeding and not paying attention to the crosswalk.

Ridge Meadows RCMP later said that one person was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, adding that no charges were expected.

BC Emergency Health Services said they received a 911 call at 9:48 a.m. Three paramedic ground units were dispatched to the scene, with the first paramedic arriving in less than eight minutes. One patient was cared for and taken to hospital in stable condition.

Dispatchers can automatically launch an air ambulance when a call first comes in. However the call did not require an air ambulance, said emergency health services.
