A Sylvan Lake woman was airlifted by STARS Air Ambulance to hospital in Edmonton following a serious crash on Aspelund Road Tuesday morning.

Police and emergency services responded to the scene near Highway 20 at around 7:15 a.m., where an eastbound car was determined to have collided with a westbound cement truck.

Police investigation revealed that the car crossed the centre line before striking the truck.

Members of the Bentley Fire Department extricated the car’s driver and lone occupant, a 55-year-old Sylvan Lake woman, who was left trapped by the crash.

Because of the serious nature of her injuries, STARS Air Ambulance was dispatched to take her to the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton.

At press time, she was in stable condition.

Traffic on Aspelund Road was re-routed until the road was re-opened about three hours later.

Sylvan Lake RCMP along with a Red Deer-based collision analyst continue to investigate the incident.
