A driver is in hospital after a car appeared to drive off an upper deck of a BC Ferries deck and crashed onto the terminal tarmac below.
BC Ferries spokesperson Deborah Marshall said the Coastal Renaissance arrived at Tsawwassen from Duke Point at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The last vehicle to be unloaded off the upper deck ended up driving off the ship, accelerating rapidly and smashing through a concrete wall, Marshall said.
It fell about 30 feet, landing on its roof, Marshall added.
The driver was conscious and was loaded onto a stretcher and taken away via ground ambulance, she confirmed. No one else was injured.
The Coastal Renaissance is running about an hour behind schedule and was moved over to another berth at the terminal to resume operation, Marshall said.
An investigation into the incident is underway.
