A westbound industrial truck exiting Highway 1 has hit the 232nd Street overpass in Langley, shearing off its top, and causing both the on and off ramps to be blocked.
A local resident said he heard a “big whomp” sound at 4:10 a.m.
DriveBC first reported the crash just at 5:30 a.m., and emergency crews are on scene. The crash is causing a visual distraction and congestion, as vehicles are backed up to 264th Street on Highway 1.
Westbound commuters should expect delays. A Ministry of Highways person on site said initial indications are that it is structurally sound. Traffic is allowed on the overpass. The westbound onramp to get into the TransCanada Highway was still closed after 8 a.m.
