Two people suffered serious injuries when one vehicle slammed head-on into another, stationary, vehicle in Aldergrove shortly after 12 a.m. Saturday.

The collision happened near 273 Street and 29 Avenue.

The crash involved a Mitsubishi Lancer and a parked Dodge Ram pickup truck .

RCMP said the Lancer was southbound on 273 Street when it failed to negotiate the slight curve in the road and crossed over to the northbound lane colliding with the legally parked Dodge.

Both people in the car were trapped and firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free them.

The passenger was airlifted for treatment of life-threatening injuries and remains in “grave condition,” a police statement said Monday.

The driver, a 38-year-old man from Chilliwack was taken to hospital by ground ambulance and was expected to recover from his injuries.

Police said alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in the collision.
