One woman was flown to hospital after a serious crash that closed a portion of Highway 19 in both directions near Lantzville Saturday.
The Lantzville Fire Department, along with B.C. Ambulance and the RCMP responded just after 5 p.m. to a single vehicle accident in the southbound lane in the 8100-block of the highway.
They arrived to find a vehicle had rolled over after hitting the center divider, and only had the woman inside. She was taken by a B.C. Ambulance helicopter to hospital in critical condition.
The road remained closed until around 9:30 p.m. as the crash spread debris through both lanes.
The current condition of the woman and the cause of the crash have not been released.
“We are glad the occupant was transported to hospital, it’s always a good sign,” said lieutenant Trevor Johnson from the Lantzville Fire Department.
Officials are reminding the public to slow down as the weather clears.
“Just drive defensively, watch your speed, I know its nice weather and you want to get from A to B faster but follow those speed signs,” added Johnson.
