An Abbotsford driver was airlifted to hospital where she is in critical condition after another serious crash along Maclure Road on Wednesday night.
It appears a Toyota Corolla was attempting to make a left hand turn from the stop sign on Crossley Drive onto Maclure when it was T-boned by a westbound Ford Explorer at 6:20 p.m., said Const. Ian MacDonald.
The Corolla's 32-year-old female driver was seriously injured and airlifted to hospital where she remains in critical condition.
The 17-year-old male driver of the Ford SUV was shaken but not seriously injured.
APD traffic reconstructionists are investigating but contributing factors seem to be a curve in that stretch of Maclure, along with the dark, wet conditions and the left hand turn, said MacDonald.
The Maclure Road corridor and Gladwin Road at the George Ferguson Way and South Fraser Way intersections have been identified as high crash locations, according to police.
There have been 17 crashes along Maclure Road alone since the start of the year.
"So far this year, there's been a real over representation in the number of crashes on Maclure compared to other areas," said MacDonald.
Police are reminding drivers be extra cautious in the Maclure corridor where left hand turns, high speed and running stale lights are the primary reasons for collisions.
Anyone who witnessed Wednesday's crash should contact the APD at 604-859-5225.
