Serious crash on SR-503 in Orchards area

Posted: Updated:

A serious three-car crash in the Orchards area led to a major extraction operation to get a person out of a car.

It happened around 3 p.m. Friday on SR-503 just north of 76th Street.

Vancouver firefighters said it took 30 minutes to free one person trapped inside a car, because they basically had to take apart much of the car.

That person was taken to the hospital, but there are no reports yet on the seriousness of any injuries to the people involved.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. It led to a major traffic jam in the area Friday.
