A woman in her 30s is dead after a workplace accident that took place along a highway in Maple Ridge on Thursday.
The accident involved a piece of machinery, which was believed to be employed in some off-roadway surveying activity along Lougheed Highway east of 240th Street, said RCMP Sgt. Scott Grimmer.
Mounties were called to the scene at about 4 p.m. Police notified WorkSafeBC that officers were at the site of the incident.
