VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The driver of a motorcycle as well as his passenger are in serious condition in hospital after getting into a crash in Mission this afternoon.

Corporal Dave Lagerwerf with Mission RCMP says a couple of neighbours are being called heroes after they were able to rescue them from underneath a car. “Neighbours that were there came out and actually had heavy equipment jacks, which they used to jack the vehicle up, and got the weight off the driver of the motorcycle.”

Most of the driver’s body was trapped underneath the car.

Highway 7 was closed for several hours as an air ambulance had to be called in.
