Breaking: Motorist airlifted from Aldergrove border rollover

Canadian and American emergency personnel worked alongside to help a motorist after a lunchtime rollover Friday on Zero Avenue at 266th Street.

Emergency personnel received a call about the crash just after 1 p.m. A lone female in the vehicle was taken away by air ambulance.

“The original call came in from the sheriffs on the U.S. side,” explained Langley RCMP Const. Craig van Herk.

The Canadian vehicle came to rest partway in the ditch on the American side. Van Herk said at that point it became a joint effort to help.

“Emergency services from both sides were there,” he said.

He said it’s something that happens in border communities and both sides cooperate when situations arise.

“Behind the scenes there’s a lot of communication [when there is an emergency at the border’],” van Herk explained.

The narrow single lane road used to connect with the Aldergrove border crossing but has been closed off as the crossing undergoes a renovation.

The crash splintered a power pole and BC Hydro crews were on scene to install a replacement and restore power to the area.
