The Big Crunch
Police and emergency crews taxed by cavalcade of vehicle accidents
RCMP sort out what happened on Prairie Central Rd. Below a tangle of live hydro lines above the overturned pickup truck.
t was a Black Friday on Chilliwack roads as vehicles smashed and bashed into each other from one end of the city to the other.
The carnage began around noon
when an accident on Luckakuck Way pinned a woman inside the vehicle.
A medevac was brought in to airlift her to hospital. There is no
word at this time on her condition.
Police were called to Vernon
Dr around 10:30 p.m. after reports that there was a hit and run at a
complex where the neighbours are feuding. No other information is
available on this.
Just after 11 p.m., reports filtered in about a pedestrian hit and run at Watson Rd and Vedder Rd. As it turned out, it was an MVI with minor injuries.
When asked ICBC how many crashes occurred on Friday, media spokesperson, Adam Grossman told The Voice Saturday that RCMP may have the "ancedotal" data.
"We don't have crash data
anywhere near that current but they may at least be able to give you
an anecdotal report," said Grossman.
Please note that all of the information here has not been confirmed by ICBC or RCMP. At this point, we're waiting to hear back from ICBC.
