Two children were taken to hospital following a crash on the Sea-to-Sky Highway on Saturday, and two drivers are now under investigation — including the driver of a silver Lamborghini that was part of a popular supercar rally.

Police say the Lamborghini was involved in an incident with a black Range Rover while driving northbound around noon on Saturday.

That caused it to spin out of control, travel over the median and into oncoming traffic, where it collided with a Toyota.

Occupants of both vehicles were sent to hospital, including two children. The children are in stable condition, according to Whistler RCMP.

The Lamborghini was part of the Hublot Diamond Rally — a supercar convoy that drives the Sea-to-Sky to raise money for charity.

Traffic was backed up for hours following the incident as collision reconstruction teams surveyed the crash. Police are considering criminal charges.

"We are investigating both the drivers of the Range Rover and the Lamborghini for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle," Sgt. Sascha Banks said in a written statement.

"We have seen far too much tragedy on the Sea-to-Sky Highway to last us all a lifetime, we can only implore those in our area to slow down," she said. "Everyone who visits us wants to get to their destination safe and sound."

Anyone who witnessed or has dashcam footage of the crash is asked to contact police.
