magine you're just going out for a quick shopping trip, then suddenly, you're trapped and injured in what was once your vehicle.
Two vehicles sit crushed on Promontory Rd. Chunks of plastic debris are strewn up and down the street. Chilliwack paramedics scramble to stabilize and extricate a trapped woman while first responders work to extricate her with the jaws of life.
This was the scene last Sunday around 7 p.m. when a grey Hyndai Santa Fe SUV driven by a 38-year-old Chilliwack woman, was travelling up the hill on Promontory Rd. when swerved into oncoming traffic and slammed head-on into a dark blue Pontiac G5.
RCMP closed off Promontory between Uplands and Teskey for hours.
