A woman was critically injured in a two-car accident north of Nordic on Highway 99 Saturday morning.

According to Whistler RCMP Rob Knapton, the Whistler woman in her late 30s lost control of her Honda Fit, slid into the oncoming lane and was broadsided on the passenger side by a minivan heading southbound.

The woman was taken to the local clinic then airlifted to a hospital for treatment.

Knapton said the two people in the minivan were shaken but unhurt and left without any injuries.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the accident that happened just before 7:30 a.m..

“It snowed overnight and it’s got a couple of inches of snow on the ground and it is a little bit slippery out and we’re looking into if that was a contributing factor or not,” Knapton said.

Knapton reminded drivers to be prepared for snowy conditions and drive with caution.

“It’s important for people to remember that they need to drive according to conditions and make sure they’ve got snow tires or appropriate equipment in their vehicles so that they can handle it,” he said. “When it snows like this especially after a long period without snow, just [remember] to slow down.”

RCMP and traffic services are currently investigating.
