PEMBERTON, B.C. — The president of a Whistler, B.C., cycling club says two of three people killed in a weekend crash were active members of his group with a lot of experience on the road.

Police say a man who they believe was impaired drove into a group of cyclists on the Sea-to-Sky Highway, north of Pemberton, around noon Sunday.

Officers say the collision killed two of the riders and the vehicle’s sole passenger, while the condition of a third cyclist who was hit is unknown.

Frank Savage of the Whistler Cycling Club says the group was apparently wheeling down a steep and challenging area when the accident happened.

Savage says the two dead cyclists were prominent riders in the resort municipality and his group is devastated, however both he and police are withholding their identities.

RCMP say the driver of the vehicle, who is now in a Vancouver hospital, appears to have been impaired during the crash, based on observations from witnesses and officers at the scene. (CKNW)
