TRAFFIC: Highway 1 in Abbotsford snarled after crash involving semi

A collision involving a semi truck has snarled traffic near the Sumas Way exit

A collision involving multiple vehicles, including a semi truck, snarled eastbound traffic on Highway near the Sumas Way exit Friday afternoon.

The collision was reported around 3:15 p.m. just west of the Sumas Way interchange. It appears to involve a semi truck, a five-ton truck, and a van.

Google Traffic suggested traffic backed up past the Clearbrook Road interchange. The accident has since been cleared, but highway traffic remained slow as rush hour began.
