Two-car crash on Highway 99. Impaired driving. No insurance — no driving. Mischief.

Two-car crash on Highway 99

Police say that two cars crashed on Highway 99 near Lions Bay on Sept, 27, sending both drivers to the hospital.  At about 6 a.m., a car travelling northbound on Highway 99 near Lions Bay fishtailed into the oncoming lane, hitting the side of another car.

Emergency Health Services took both drivers to the hospital, where they received medical attention. Both cars were towed as they were not driveable. The highway was shut down for about an hour and a half.

Impaired driving

Squamish RCMP investigated a report of impaired driving on Sept. 26. Police say that at about 8 p.m., two men left a local pub after drinking.

The driver failed impaired driving tests, and, thus, police issued him a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and impounded his car.

No insurance — no driving

A man was ticketed for having no insurance after he was spotted at a construction site hooking up his uninsured trailer for transport.

Police gave the man a verbal warning about the consequences of driving uninsured, but shortly after, the man decided to tow the trailer anyway. Officers tracked him down and gave him a ticket for driving without insurance, and towed the trailer.


Someone has put graffiti on an electric pole at the Hydro substation in Britannia Beach. Police received an online report about it on Sept. 23 at about 9:30 a.m.
