Motorists can expect more traffic delays heading into Richmond this evening.
An accident involving five vehicles is blocking westbound traffic on Highway 91 in the left lane just past the exit to Westminster Highway and near Nelson Road.
According to a Twitter post by News1130 Traffic, emergency crew is at the scene and blocking the right lane making drivers get by on the shoulder of the highway.
Traffic is backed up over the Alex Fraser Bridge past the Nordel Way on-ramp.
The accident also seems to be causing a visual distraction for vehicles in the eastbound side of Highway 91.
