A man and a woman were airlifted to hospital Sunday afternoon after their vehicle went into the median on Highway 1 and hit a large strip of soil.
The accident took place at about 4 p.m. when the Honda Civic was travelling west, just east of the McCallum Road overpass.
RCMP and the Abbotsford Police Department shut down traffic on the freeway between Sumas Way and McCallum Road. Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and BC Ambulance freed the trapped driver and passenger and set up a landing zone for the Medivac helicopter.
The pair were taken to hospital with head and facial injuries.
