A woman had to be cut from her car Friday afternoon following a collision along Luckakuck Way near Superstore.

The woman had just pulled out of the parking lot to turn left when a southbound vehicle slammed into her driver’s side door.

The driver of the second car, a yellow Volkswagen Beetle, said she was in the lefthand lane as she approached the parking lot. A vehicle in the right lane had just passed her when a blue Toyota Yaris pulled out in front of her, leaving her no time to stop.

The impact of the collision crushed the front left quarter-panel of the Yaris and crumpled the driver’s side door, pinning the woman inside.

Chilliwack firefighters used the Jaws of Life to remove both doors and the centre column to free the woman. With the assistance of paramedics, she was able get out of the vehicle under her own power.

She was taken to hospital by BC Ambulance Service.

The driver of the second vehicle said she was uninjured.
