UPDATE: New incident on Highway 1 in Langley, crashes involving 10 cars cleared

Earlier crashes involving 10 cars eastbound on the Trans-Canada Highway have been cleared, but another incident on the highway in Langley has been reported.

There is new vehicle incident eastbound underneath the 216th Street overpass blocking the HOV and left lane, according to the Transportation Ministry who reported the incident just after 2 p.m.

Earlier, two separate crashes, involving 10 cars was also causing major traffic congestion eastbound Highway 1.

The incident was reported by the transportation ministry just after 1 p.m. and was said to be blocking all lanes west of 216th Street.

“There doesn’t appear to be any major injuries or extraction required at this point,” said Andy Hewitson, Township of Langley assistant fire chief.

One crash involved three vehicles and the other seven, Hewitson explained.

Traffic was getting by only on the shoulder, according to the ministry, but the area has since been cleared.

Commuters can expect “heavy delays and congestion.”
