Pinned passenger pulled out by fire crew

Emergency crews had to rescue one person from the wreckage of a Wednesday morning crash at Westminster Highway and Nelson Road.

According to City of Richmond spokesperson Ted Townsend, a semi-truck rolled over and struck an SUV around 6:30 a.m.

Two people were rushed to hospital, including the driver of the semi, and a female passenger in the SUV.

Richmond Fire-Rescue successfully extricated one person, who was rushed to hospital by ambulance within an hour of the crash.

The extent of the injuries suffered wasn’t known, Townsend said.
