Dramatic crash caught on camera after driver speeds through Vancouver stop sign
VANCOUVER -- One person is in hospital after a high-speed crash happened in a Vancouver intersection Friday morning.
Surveillance video from the intersection shows a silver car travelling quickly along Prince Edward before it collides with a pickup truck travelling down 57th Avenue.
It appears the driver of the car sped through a stop sign. Though the sign is obscured by a tree in the video, a white painted line can be seen on the road, in line with the signpost.
The street view on Google Maps shows Prince Edward has a stop sign at that intersection in both directions.
B.C. Emergency Health Services said it received a call about that crash at about 7:30 a.m.
Four paramedic crews and a supervisor unit went to the scene and one person was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries as a precaution. Two others were treated on-scene by paramedics.
Vancouver police said two people from the same vehicle became trapped inside and the jaws of life were used to get them out safely.
Both vehicles appeared to be badly damaged and had to be towed from the area.
