Vehicle leaves overpass and crashes on to highway, injuring two
A bizarre two-vehicle crash closed the westbound lanes of Highway 1 Friday morning sending at least two people to hospital.
A truck travelling northbound near the Gibson Road overpass left the road and crashed onto an eastbound vehicle on Highway 1 below.
The collision ripped out the cable barrier and littered the highway with debris.
One vehicle came to rest in a ditch at the side of the westbound lane of Highway 1, where firefighters struggled to free the occupant.
That person was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The other vehicle, with a severely crumpled front end, came to rest against the barrier median in the eastbound lane several metres east of the overpass.
Two occupants of that vehicle were also transported to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The incident remains under investigation by Fraser Valley Traffic Service.
