Jaws of Life used to extricate woman in Chilliwack MVA

Accident blocked Ashwell Road at Westview Avenue before 2 p.m. on Dec. 21

First responders were on the scene at around 1:45 p.m. on Thursday of a motor vehicle accident that blocked Ashwell Drive in Chilliwack just north of Bernard Avenue.

The Chilliwack Fire Department were on the scene using the Jaws of Life to extricate an 85-year-old woman from her vehicle that was T-boned at the intersection of Ashwell and Westview Avenue.

Paramedics were treating the woman on the scene as crews worked on the small blue Nissan hatchback.

A grey Nissan Rogue along with debris was on Ashwell and northbound traffic was forced to turn around, with southbound traffic being rerouted onto Westview.
