DriveBC reports a crash is impacting westbound traffic near Three Valley Gap, and emergency crews are en route.

The Trans-Canada Highway is closed in both directions Sunday following a crash west of Revelstoke.

The crash occurred at about 6 a.m. near Three Valley Gap, about 19 kilometres west of Revelstoke. Webcams in the area show snow covering the highway.

The road is expected to be closed for at least a couple hours, and DriveBC plans to update the closure at 9:30 a.m.
