Video footage has surfaced of the crash that closed the Massey Tunnel between Richmond and Delta Friday morning and injured one person.
The dash cam footage, taken May 7 at 8:18 a.m. belonged to the driver of a southbound vehicle that recently travelled out from the tunnel.
A vehicle heading northbound is seen crashing into the concrete median, flipping over and skidding southbound down Highway 99 into the car.
In a matter of seconds, the car’s airbag is deployed and a child is heard crying.
The scene was cleared shortly after 11 a.m. according to Drive BC, but congestion persisted as an effect of hours-long lane closures.
B.C. Ambulance Services said only one person sustained injuries as a result of the collision.
CLEAR – #BCHwy99 SB Vehicle stall was in the #MasseyTunnel, now cleared. Expect congestion from prior incident. #Delta #Richmond
