The highway was shut down for a time while First Responders rendered aid to the parties involved. Impairment was not a factor in the collision. The driver of the pickup was issued a violation ticket for their role in the collision.

All parties received minor injuries and two were transported to hospital by BC Ambulance Service.

The bridge will now be single lane alternating traffic until it is deemed safe to open both lanes.
