Two people were trapped in their vehicle after it hit a tree in Chilliwack Wednesday morning.
The incident took place at about 8:45 a.m. on Camp River Road, just east of Jesperson Road on Jan. 27.
Paramedics called for two air ambulances to attend the scene and first responders were busy setting up a landing zone in the area. The vehicle, an SUV, was travelling eastbound on Camp River Road when it hit a tree on the south side of the road. It spun and went into a ditch, landing backwards just feet from the Camp River Slough.
Fire crews used the Jaws of Life, and both occupants of the vehicle were removed by 9:20 a.m.
Camp River Road was blocked in both directions between Jesperson Road and just east of the crash scene.
Update: The air ambulances were called off due to the weather.
