BC’s Sea to Sky Highway was closed in both directions Tuesday morning because of a crash south of Squamish.

It reopened with one lane of alternating traffic around 12:30 pm, according to a Squamish RCMP news release.

The collision occurred between Porteau Cove and Brunswick Beach Road, about six kilometres north of Lions Bay. Cars could not get through going north or south.

BC Emergency Health Services spokesperson Shannon Miller said they received the first alert at 9 am about a two-vehicle collision. One patient was airlifted to hospital in critical condition, and a second person in stable condition was taken by ground ambulance.

DriveBC estimated the road would reopen fully around 3 pm Tuesday.
