A 26-year-old Vancouver man has been identified as the driver of a car that the wrong way through the Massey Tunnel and south along Highway 99.

“We have not ruled out impairment but we may never know the actual reason.”

The man collided head-on with a Toyota Rav 4, sending a 19-year-old woman to hospital with serious injuries.

The 48-year-old Surrey woman driving the Toyota received unknown injuries.

A grey Honda Pilot was also hit during the collision and both people in the vehicle were treated by paramedics on scene.
