A portion of Highway 91 was off-limits to drivers Saturday (April 3) morning after a vehicle collided with a semi-trailer on the wrong side of the roadway.
Alcohol is suspected as a factor in the collision, said Cpl. Adriana O’Malley with Richmond RCMP.
At around 3:30 a.m. the driver of a red Hyundai was headed eastbound in westbound lanes when the vehicle came head-on with a semi-trailer just east of Westminster Highway overpass.
The red Hyundai driver, a male, was trapped. Firefighters had to use specialized equipment to extricate him from the vehicle.
He was rushed to hospital with serious injuries, while the driver of the semi-truck appeared uninjured.
