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.
