Speed and alcohols are factors in overnight crash

According to the Mounties, speed and alcohol were factors in an early morning crash in Richmond where two young women were hospitalized and resulted in almost 2,000 power outages.

The women were in a Honda sedan that crashed into a hydro pole on No. 6 Road at around 12:30 AM, downing some power lines and sending the vehicle rolling into a ditch.

According to Richmond RCMP, the significant efforts by the emergency personnel were required to remove the occupants from the overturned vehicle. The driver, a 21-year old Surrey resident was significantly hurt with critical injuries. The paramedics performed CPR on her at the scene before transporting to a hospital. The 22-year old passenger sustained serious injuries, but not life-threatening.
