Vancouver Island’s Highway 4 closed at Cameron Lake after crash

Motorists advised of head-on crash, highway closed for hours

A crash completely closed Highway 4 near Cameron Lake.

According to Drive B.C., the vehicle incident Sunday night closed a 21-kilometre stretch of highway between Maebelle Road and Chalet Road, from six kilometres east of Cathedral Grove to one kilometre east of Port Alberni. The highway was expected to re-open at 3 a.m. Monday. No detour is available in that area.

A motorist near the scene told Black Press via social media that fire crews advised the head-on crash would close the highway for two to six hours.

Earlier Sunday, about 8:30 p.m., the Nanoose Bay Volunteer Fire Department advised motorists via social media that a crash at Highway 19 and Northwest Bay Road caused the closure of the highway in both directions. That scene was cleared at 9 p.m.
