Paramedics say a vehicle containing a mother, her child and a teenage nanny hit at least one car at the bottom of the hill.
The out-of-control car crashed into a metal guard rail and ended up on its roof by the seawall.

An air ambulance was used to take two of the accident victims to Royal Columbian Hospital including the person in critical condition, according to B.C. Ambulance. Five ground ambulances were also called.
Three patients were transported to Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock.
