A woman who was severely injured in a car crash on the Coquihalla Highway last year is looking for a couple who helped save her life.

The accident happened July 11, 2021, between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m., according to Neina LaCroix, a close friend of the victim’s mother.

According to LaCroix, the woman was ejected from a Nissan Pathfinder near Larson Hill while travelling westbound. Her right leg was severed as well as half of her right hand.

“Kate would like to meet and thank this amazing couple for stopping and helping tie off her leg and hand until emergency crews arrived,” the post reads.

The couple appeared to be in their mid-to-late 50s or possibly older.

“I just want to add that this beautiful young lady is healing well and adapting to her challenging situation. Her positive attitude and determination around this accident is an inspiration.”

LaCroix is asking others to share the story to help find the couple. Reach LaCroix through her Facebook page.
