Highway 1 through Abbotsford has been re-opened following a long closure prompted by several crashes near Whatcom Road this afternoon.
A large crash involving multiple vehicles took place in the westbound lanes of Highway 1 in Abbotsford, near the Whatcom Road interchange, around 3 p.m. Sunday.
The pile-up forced the closure of Highway 1 westbound in that area for several hours.
An Abbotsford Police officer reported around 9 p.m. that the highway had been re-opened.
All opened up now. Please drive carefully and stay safe !
