Crash on Anthony Henday East and Yellowhead Tr. tying up traffic


WATCH: Our Global 1 helicopter gives you a bird’s eye view of a multiple vehicle collision that’s tying up traffic. Stacy Woodward has the details.

EDMONTON — A crash involving several vehicles in Strathcona County is affecting the drive home.

Four vehicles were involved in the collision, and a fifth one was damaged by debris.

A big gravel truck allegedly rear ended a vehicle, causing it to strike the median. The vehicle then spun around and struck a northbound truck. The impact pushed it into another lane, where it was then struck by the gravel truck, as well.

The initial car that was hit also collided with another vehicle before coming to a stop.

The northbound lanes of Anthony Henday Drive were closed for approximately two hours while RCMP investigated the collision. The lanes were re-opened at approximately 6:00 p.m.

Two drivers — a 55-year-old Edmonton man and a 23-year-old Kelowna man — were taken by ambulance to local hospitals with minor injuries.

The investigation continues and charges are pending.

At this point, speed, drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash.
