Tragic Accident

Tragic accident, September 13th, on the road to Bamfield

This morning I was notified about a tragic bus accident last evening on the road from Pt. Alberni to Bamfield, 1.6 kilometres west of Francis Lake, involving UVic students travelling to the Bamfield Marine Science Center. Two students have passed away as a result of this accident.

On behalf of the entire Bamfield community I would like to offer our most sincere condolences to all the families involved in this terrible accident.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank the first responders for their efforts last night during what was clearly a difficult and challenging situation.
