Accident injures two Sunday afternoon

Two people were injured Sunday afternoon after the vehicle they were travelling in left the road, flipped upside down and landed in a ditch in the 12500 block of Dewdney Trunk Road.

Mission firefighters, B.C. Ambulance paramedics and local Mounties responded to the call, and found the two people trapped, said Assitant Fire Chief Ian Fitzpatrick.

"Both occupants were conscious and had to be extricated," he noted.

One patient was flown out in the ambulance helicopter, which staged further up the road, while the second person was taken to Mission Memorial Hospital.

None of the injuries were life-threatening, said Fitzpatrick.

The heavy rain pounded down on rescue crews as they battled to get to the patients, then to safely get them up the mud-slicked bank.
