A two-vehicle collision sent a 53-year-old Langley woman to hospital in an air ambulance on Wednesday in Abbotsford.

The crash occurred at about 3:30  p.m. at the intersection of Ross and Maclure roads.

Police, fire and ambulance responded to the scene and found two vehicles with one occupant in each car.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the initial investigation indicates that an Acura Integra was headed east on Maclure Road and attempted to make a left turn onto Ross Road when it was struck on the driver’s side door by a Honda CRV heading south on Ross.

The impact sent the Acura, driven by the Langley woman, into a large ditch.

Assistant Fire Chief Craig Bird said the woman was trapped in the vehicle and the jaws of life were used to extricate her from the car. She was airlifted with serious injuries.

The driver of the CRV, a 50-year-old Abbotsford man, was not seriously injured.

The crash is still under investigation, and no charges or tickets have been issued.
