Single vehicle rollover accident sends Surrey woman to hospital via air ambulance

A Surrey woman was airlifted to hospital after a single vehicle rollover accident on Friday afternoon.

The woman’s Dodge Durango was apparently traveling at a high rate of speed on a portion of Zero Avenue when it went off the road on the United States side, rolled over, sheared off a power pole and came to rest straddling the Canada/U.S. border.

A witness at the scene said that portion of Zero Avenue had been closed for construction.

The accident happened just after 1 p.m. and the road was shut down for about three hours while Langley  RCMP investigated the accident.

The woman was rescued from the vehicle by the fire department and then transported to Royal Columbian Hospital by air ambulance.

The B.C. Ambulance Service had to land in a field on the United States side of the border.
