Stanley Park Causeway reopens after head-on crash sends woman to hospital


Vancouver's Stanley Park Causeway partially reopened Monday evening after the head-on collision during rush hour sent one woman to hospital and closed the road in both directions.

Vancouver Police Department spokesperson Const. Jason Doucette said the crash, which occurred at approximately 5 p.m. PT, involved two vehicles: a Kia Soul and a Toyota Sienna minivan.

There were no passengers in the vehicles, but the driver of the minivan was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

"We're not really sure what led to the collision or what caused it," Doucette said.

Vancouver police, in an emailed statement, said that at 6:30 p.m. one lane northbound and one lane southbound had been opened. Doucette said investigators were on the scene examining the crash.

DriveBC reported the crash occurred north of North Lagoon Drive, about halfway into the park.

The causeway leads from downtown to the Lions Gate Bridge which connects Vancouver to the North Shore.
