Traffic on the Sea-to-Sky Highway slowed to a crawl Saturday afternoon while a flaming sports car burned itself out.
The orange Lamborghini caught fire on Highway 99 near the “Big Orange Bridge” north of Squamish. The incident occurred shortly after 4 p.m., and was captured on video by Instagram user gregsenko:
According to Drive BC, southbound traffic was being diverted to the northbound lane to avoid the burning vehicle. The accident was cleared before 6 p.m.
Other Instagram posts suggest the vehicle belonged to Scenic Rush, a tour company that lets customers pay for the opportunity to drive sports cars.
