Lightning Strikes Twice
Pair of Motor vehicle accident leaves two injured
Emergency crews deal with an accident at Williams and Yale Rd while RCMP sort out what happened.
hilliwack RCMP, first responders and BCAS paramedics responded to a two-vehicle motor vehicle accident at around 11 a.m. on Thursday.
There were unconfirmed reports of head injuries to both drivers. Both vehicles slid off the road into a nearby hedge, knocking down a stop sign. Fire fighters de-energized both vehicles on the scene to prevent fires.
There is no word on the cause of the accident, or if distracted driving was a factor.
