ORIGINAL: 9:35 p.m.

The Coquihalla Highway is closed southbound between Merritt and Kamloops due to a vehicle incident, DriveBC reports.

The incident occurred about four kilometres south of the exit for Highway 97D. 

DriveBC says the highway is expected to reopen at 2 p.m. A detour is available via the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 97D.

One traveller described the incident as a "horrible" multi-vehicle crash, and photos show a semi truck jackknifed across the highway.

Compact snow and slippery sections are the current conditions on that stretch of the mountain highway, according to DriveBC.
