Truck and trailer crash into Harrison plaza

No serious injuries after driver suffers medical emergency behind wheel

Another vehicle has crashed into the plaza in Harrison Hot Springs, but this time it was caused by a medical emergency.

On Saturday at about 4 p.m., a man driving a pick up and trailer suffered an undisclosed medical emergency at the intersection of Hot Springs Road and Lillooet Ave. RCMP say the man blacked out and then accelerated and jumped the curb into the plaza on Esplanade at a high rate of speed.

The plaza was very busy with people at the time, but no one was hit by his vehicle. The impact was hard, RCMP say, and the man was taken to Chilliwack General by paramedics.

There is no suspicion of alcohol involvement.

In July, a vehicle drove straight into the plaza, injuring three members of one family.
