(Michael Hall/THE NEWS) Firefighters had to pry out one driver.

UPDATE: Two-car crash on road to Golden Ears park

Female driver taken by ambulance; traffic diverted on route to provincial park in Maple Ridge.

One person was taken by ambulance after a two-car crash on the route to Golden Ears Provincial Park on Sunday of the Victoria Day long weekend.

The collision occurred on Fern Crescent, just past the winding stretch and WildPlay Element Parks in Maple Ridge.

Just past noon, a red Fiat and white Chevrolet collided near 236th Street, where traffic in both directions was being diverted.

The Chevrolet ended up in a ditch. The driver of that car, a woman, had to be pried out by firefighters.

She was conscious and stood on her own once out, but was put in a neck brace, then on a stretcher and taken away by ambulance.

All the occupants were out of the red car. No one else seemed to be receiving medical care as police interviewed bystanders.

Ridge Meadows RCMP Sgt. Amanda Harnett said that the collision was not head-on, but that the Fiat was travelling westbound on Fern Crescent at the time while the other vehicle was pulling out of a parking lot.

No one was injured and the investigation continues, she added.
