A serious crash north of Pemberton Sunday has left several people injured.
Police say the crash Sunday (July 26) at approximately 1:15 p.m., involved several motorcycles and vehicles on the Lillooet Lake Road portion of Highway 99.
Members from several agencies, including Pemberton RCMP, the Stl'atl'imx Tribal Police, Whistler RCMP, and Sea to Sky RCMP Traffic assisted BC Ambulance and Fire Services with multiple patients.
This section of Highway 99 was closed in both directions and the Integrated Collision Analyst Reconstructionist Service (ICARS) was called in to investigate the cause of the collision.
Several people were taken to hospital and one was taken via Air Ambulance to a Lower Mainland hospital, according to an RCMP news release.

The highway will remain closed until ICARS has completed its analysis.
"This is the third motorcycle and vehicle collision on the Duffey portion of Highway 99 in several weeks and we are asking the public to please use caution when using our highway and backloads," said RCMP Sgt. Sascha Banks in the release. "We have seen an increase in traffic, above the normal summer volume, in all of the Sea to Sky and we want to see everyone arrive safely to their destinations."
