Crashes snarl traffic on Trans-Canada Hwy.

A portion of the Trans-Canada Highway was closed for nearly two hours yesterday morning after a trio of crashes.

Emergency workers were called to the initial two-vehicle crash at about 10:15 a.m. The crash, which happened about three kilometres west of MacGregor, forced the closure of both westbound lanes of the highway until just past noon.

Police haven't released any information about the cause or severity of the crash, nor whether anyone was injured.

However, poor visibility and slippery roads, combined with the resulting traffic snarl, caused two more crashes in the area. At one point, westbound traffic was at a standstill, and backed up at least three kilometres on the highway.
