Original story

Traffic was backed up on Highway 1 between Chilliwack and Agassiz following a collision which resulted in a concrete barrier being pushed into an oncoming lane of traffic.

The single-vehicle collision happened around 9:20 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 25 in the westbound lanes between Bridal Falls Road and Annis Road.

As a result, a concrete barrier was hit and pushed into the eastbound fast lane of Highway 1. Traffic in both directions was affected.

When crews from the Chilliwack Fire Department arrived on scene, they reported that there was one adult and two children involved in the crash, but all of them were out of the vehicle.

BC Ambulance Service and RCMP were also on scene.

More than an hour after the crash, westbound traffic was still slow in the area.
