Lifted trailer box rams overpass in Richmond, snarling traffic, RCMP say
A busy commuter route in Metro Vancouver closed for hours Friday while engineers assessed the safety of an overpass involved in an unusual crash.
RCMP Cpl. Dennis Hwang says a trailer being towed by a commercial vehicle rammed into the overpass just south of the Knight Street Bridge in Richmond.
He says the trailer with a box on top was in the lifted or dumping position when it crashed into the overpass.
Hwang says it’s unclear what the circumstances were before the crash, which happened at about 7:30 Friday morning.
No one was hurt.
