B.C. woman expecting twins pulled over rushing to hospital

Vehicle pulled over for speeding near Duncan on Vancouver Island

A woman expecting twins was rushing to the hospital on Thursday morning when she was stopped by police at the side of the highway in Crofton.

The vehicle she was travelling in was originally pulled over for speeding by North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at around 9 a.m. in the southbound lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway near Mt. Sicker Road.

Crofton Fire Department’s deputy chief was on route to the scene but was turned around before he arrived because BC Ambulance had already arrived.

Crofton Fire Chief Matt Ludvigson told the Chronicle that deliveries are part of a course they take as firefighters but generally their role is to bridge the gap as they wait for paramedics to arrive.

“We’ve done three in sixteen years so it is part of our training,” Ludvigson said.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP said the woman was taken to hospital by BC Ambulance Services.
