Crash kills two up Hemlock Valley Road

Agassiz RCMP investigating following deadly single-vehicle car crash Sunday

Agassiz RCMP are investigating a crash that took the lives of two individuals last weekend.

The single-vehicle incident took place Sunday, April 19 at 2:52 p.m. A male and female were headed southbound on Hemlock Valley Road in one of the areas with an S-curve when the crash occurred, according to Barb McLintock, media relations for the BC Coroners Service. BC Ambulance Service responded with four ground ambulances and one air ambulance, which landed at Sts’ailes school. However, no transport was required. Both individuals were pronounced dead on-scene.

Agassiz RCMP Sgt. Fredette says both individuals were approximately 30 years old and from the Maple Ridge area. He says RCMP are now conducting an investigation to determine, if possible, what the cause of the incident was.

Kent Harrison Search and Rescue was called to the scene. KHSAR members conducted a search in the ravine below the car to ensure there was not a third individual who may have been thrown from the vehicle, reports Neil Brewer, one of KHSAR’s managers.

Brewer describes the scene of the crash.

“It (the car) had gone airborne right at the corner and slammed into the trees about 12 feet off the ground,” reports Brewer. “The car went off the road into the trees, hit the trees with its roof and then slid down to the ground.”

The North Fraser Fire Department also attended in response to the page of an MVA on Hemlock Valley road, with people trapped.

“Upon arrival, we did locate a vehicle over an embankment, about a 20 to 25 foot embankment,” reports Chris Wilson, electoral area fire services and program manager.
