One man has died in a single-vehicle crash along a section of British Columbia's Sea to Sky Highway just south of Squamish.

RCMP say the crash happened midday Monday at the Gonzales Creek bridge and involved a black BMW coupe.

The driver, a man in his 20s, was airlifted from the scene with critical injuries and died in a Vancouver hospital.

Traffic was tied up for hours and police say an investigation could take some time to complete.

They want to speak to anyone who may have seen the car or have dashcam video of it as it travelled north between Horseshoe Bay and Squamish.

All northbound traffic was rerouted into one of the southbound lanes of the highway for more than eight hours.
