The Whistler cycling community is devastated after an alleged drunk driver crashed into two cyclists along the Sea-to-Sky on Sunday, killing two members of the Whistler Cycling Club, along with the vehicle’s sole passenger.

The accident took place during a weekend ride on the Sea-to-Sky Highway about 60 kilometres northeast of Whistler, when a driver collided with the cycling group as they were heading down a steep road. The driver is believed to have been drunk.

According to the Vancouver Sun, the two cyclists were prominent members of the Whistler Cycling Club with a lot of experience on the road. Frank Savage, president of the club, says the community is devastated.

Community residents told reporters that the driver has a history of drunk driving charges. He also had his license suspended after another incident and served 144 days in jail.
