Drivers heading south on the Malahat are no longer at a standstill.
According to Drive BC, the southbound lane of the Trans-Canada Highway through Goldstream Provincial Park between Finlayson Arm Road and West Shore Parkway was closed following a single-vehicle crash shortly before 1 p.m.
Witnesses told CHEK that a white pickup truck has collided with the side of the mountain, reducing the highway to a single lane.
A recent status update from DriveBC shows that the scene has been cleared and traffic is flowing normally.
Meanwhile, West Shore RCMP said in a post on social media that the driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Traffic is down to one lane alternating on the Malahat about 1km North of Finlayson Arm Rd. Police are on scene investigating a single vehicle collision. Driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The HWY should be opened up soon. THX for your patience!
