      A two-vehicle collision on a bridge in Metro Vancouver has resulted in both drivers being injured and traffic being rerouted.  

      Around 10:20 a.m. today (September 27), emergency services and police responded to a report of a "serious collision" that occurred in eastbound lanes of Highway 1 on the Port Mann Bridge.

      According to B.C. Highway Patrol, a delivery-type vehicle rear-ended a disabled pickup truck.

      The pickup truck driver had been outside of the vehicle at the time of the collision and was seriously injured.

      In addition, the delivery vehicle driver, who was injured as well, had to be extricated by emergency crews.

      B.C. Highway Patrol, the Criminal Collision Investigation team, and the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service are all investigating.

      B.C. Highway Patrol stated that all eastbound through lanes are closed until further notice as the investigation continues on.

      All eastbound traffic is being rerouted to the 152nd Street lanes to Surrey, which reconnect with Highway 1 south of the Fraser River.   

      Anyone with information regarding this collision is asked to contact B.C. Highway Patrol in Burnaby at 604-526-9744.

      Police are reminding all drivers to pull off the road or out of travel lanes if you are experiencing vehicle issues and that no one should ever exit a vehicle on the travel portion of a roadway or bridge.
