Traffic was stopped on Highway 99 southbound from Whistler after a motor vehicle accident involving six cars occurred Sunday morning (Dec. 2).
Sgt. Rob Knapton said the accident occurred at 10:30 a.m. near Brandywine Falls and traffic was stopped until noon in both southbound lanes to facilitate the investigation and removal of the vehicles involved.
He said one person has sustained a serious injury as a result of the accident and he added road conditions were a factor. All six vehicles went off the road into the ditch at the same spot, but RCMP indicated there didn't appear to be a collision between any of them that caused the accident.
"At this point in time, there doesn't look like there is any collision between the vehicles," Knapton said.
