HALIFAX — Five people have been sent to hospital in Halifax after a four-vehicle accident on a busy route into the city today.
Police say two of the people had serious injuries from the 7 a.m. crash.
Const. Pierre Bourdages said the crash on the Bedford Highway near the Main Street intersection created a major traffic snarl as one lane is closed on the thoroughfare. He expected the road will remain partially closed for part of the morning.
Bourdages said the closure of the road caused backups in other access points into the city during the morning rush hour.
