Rescuers work to free occupants from overturned vehicle on Chilliwack Lake Road

Two children and one adult involved in single vehicle crash along rural road

A single vehicle accident about halfway up Chilliwack Lake Road turned into a rescue effort Thursday afternoon.

Several RCMP and other first responders were called to the area on June 25, at about 1:45 p.m., near Allison Pools. BC Hydro also arrived at about 3 p.m. and restored power to about 800 customers, with several dozen others still without hydro.

There is no word on the condition of anyone involved in the vehicle incident, however witnesses have said that rescuers are using the Jaws of Life to extract passengers. There was one adult and two children in the vehicle.

Traffic was being turned around close to the accident scene.

There are three other unrelated power outages in Chilliwack, including one affecting about 200 customers in the Five Corners area of downtown. Two other outages are due to planned work on BC Hydro equipment. Those are in a community off Keith Wilson, and in the Eastern Hillsides.
