Head-on collision between a vehicle and a tow truck towing a car

One person was airlifted to hospital after a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 17 near the Tsawwassen ferry terminal Monday morning.


The accident, a head-on collision between a vehicle and a tow truck towing a car, occurred around 8:20 a.m. near Tsatsu Shores Drive at the beginning of the Tsawwassen causeway.


B.C. Emergency Health Services spokeswoman Shannon Miller says one person was airlifted to hospital and is listed in critical condition. A second person was taken to hospital in stable condition.


Hwy. 17 was reduced to one-lane alternating traffic and the causeway leading to the terminal was briefly closed to traffic, leading to significant B.C. Ferries delays. The Spirit of Vancouver Island, which runs between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island, was held in dock while emergency crews tended to the accident scene. As a result, the ferry, along with other sailings originating and ending at Tsawwassen, was operating more than an hour behind schedule.
