Firefighters use Jaws of Life to free woman from wrecked auto in Hebbs Cross crash

by Keith Corcoran

Authorities are looking into the circumstances surrounding a crash between a GMC Sierra and Honda Civic at the Highway 103 exit at Hebbs Cross over the weekend.

Police believe the woman driving the Civic attempted a left turn onto Highway 103 from Highway 3 when the vehicle was t-boned by an eastbound Sierra. The man driving the truck was not seriously hurt but the woman's injuries were considered serious. She had to be freed from the car by volunteer firefighters using the Jaws of Life.

The Civic sustained massive driver's side damage and came to rest near a utility pole. The Sierra had front driver's side damage and ended up in the middle of Highway 103.

RCMP, paramedics and volunteer firefighters from Hebbs Cross and Bridgewater were summoned to the incident at about 2:45 p.m., September 29.

Police ruled out speed and intoxication as potential factors causing the crash.

Motor vehicle traffic was temporarily restricted in the area as emergency crews worked the scene and RCMP investigated.

There was no immediate word on whether or not charges would be filed.
