A crash on Highway 1 in Chilliwack had traffic clogged on Saturday morning.

The collision occurred sometime before 10:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the highway between Yale Road West and Lickman Road, directly across from the end of Barrow Road.

The vehicle left the highway and went into a ditch.

According to firefighters on scene, no one was trapped in the vehicle but one elderly person was injured.

Traffic was flowing normally again about an hour after the collision occurred.

Traffic was also backed up westbound due to a truck convoy heading from Chilliwack to Surrey.
