Two separate crashes snarl traffic on Harris Road

Speed and tailgating during the morning commute on Thursday resulted in two separate collisions involving six cars in Abbotsford.

Traffic was snarled following two separate accidents not far from one another this morning (Thursday) on Harris Road in Abbotsford.
