Crash badly injures driver

Shortly before midnight on Wednesday, September 25, emergency crews responded to a single-vehicle collision on the Sunshine Coast Highway near Hill Road in Sechelt.

The vehicle had been southbound on the highway when the driver apparently lost control, and the car collided with a large tree near the roadway. Members of the Sechelt Fire department had to cut off the roof of the car in order to get the driver out, before she was airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital.

The 21 year-old female driver from Sechelt was still in the Intensive Care Unit as of September 29. Sunshine Coast RCMP are investigating whether speed and wet roads may have been factors in the collision.

The Sunshine Coast RCMP and Sechelt Fire department have identified this location as a high crash zone. Cst Mohr with Sunshine Coast RCMP said that “Although speed is often a key factor in collisions at this location, we are also working with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to consider safety options in order to help reduce serious collisions in the area.”
