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.
â€œThe original call came in from the sheriffs on the U.S. side,â€ 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.
â€œEmergency services from both sides were there,â€ he said.
He said itâ€™s something that happens in border communities and both sides cooperate when situations arise.
â€œBehind the scenes thereâ€™s a lot of communication [when there is an emergency at the borderâ€™],â€ 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.
