Highway 4 between Parksville and Port Alberni was blocked for around 2 hours following a head-on collision between pickup and sedan Sunday.

The Coombs/Hilliers Volunteer Fire Department says they responded around 2 p.m. to the incident and arrived to multiple patients with non-life threatening injuries near Cameron Lake.

They say B.C. Ambulance treated them at the scene and as the accident was on a narrow stretch of road it had blocked off access completely.

Drive B.C. says the highway opened at 3:40 p.m.

The road is the major connection For Tofino, Ucluelet and Port Alberni to the rest of the Island. Access is still possible following a closure however it requires a long detour through mostly logging roads.
