“The preliminary information collected at the scene showed that the rainy weather, along with the accumulation of water on the pavement were contributing factors to the crash,” said Const. Alex Berube of the West Shore RCMP. “Both the driver and the only passenger of the bus were transported to hospital for minor injuries.”

No charges have been laid at this time and the collision remains under investigation.

According to Drive BC, maintenance work is planned for Highway 1 in both directions near Leigh Road, starting Sept. 13 at 7 p.m., finishing on Sept. 14.
