Crash slows Hwy 1 again

UPDATE: 12:50 p.m.

Another crash has slowed traffic along the Trans-Canada Highway about 20 kilometres west of Revelstoke, according to a motorist.

Brandon Beal said the highway was blocked off for a short time but traffic is now moving through an alternating single-lane.

Beal said it's the third closure along Highway 1 he has endured today, as he is commuting from Cochrane, Alta. to Abbotsford.

"I sat at the last scene for over an hour, and for 45 minutes at the accident scene prior to that," he told Castanet.

Single-lane alternating traffic is also still in effect west of Golden, where DriveBC reported an accident closed the highway for about an hour in both directions.
