A driver was sent to hospital after a “significant” collision on the 2400 block of Marine Drive in West Vancouver.

Just after 6 a.m. Wednesday morning, West Vancouver police received a report about the incident.

Preliminary information suggests a driver was travelling eastbound on Marine Drive when their vehicle struck a granite road sign at the intersection of 25th Street and Marine Drive, police said.

“The resulting debris field stretches a half-block on both sides of the roadway,” reads a statement from West Vancouver police. “The driver was transported to hospital with minor injuries, and thankfully, no one else involved in the collision.”

The surrounding Dundarave roadway has been closed by police since the incident occurred.

Officers are investigating the cause of the collision. Speed and impairment have not been ruled out, police said.

WVPD spokesperson Sgt. Chris Bigland said no pedestrians or other drivers were injured.

“Marine Drive will be closed in both directions until the debris can be cleared and the road returned to a safe condition,” he said. “We ask the public to avoid the area as much as possible.”
