The Vancouver Police closed the Burrard Street Bridge for rush hour traffic in both directions this morning while investigating a “serious motor vehicle accident”. An hour later, they re-opened the bridge.
Vancouver Police Sergeant Louise Gibbs says a small black Volkswagen rolled over, leaving glass and debris across the south end of the bridge. The female driver was rushed to hospital but has non-life threatening injuries.
Update: You can see from images captured from KatKam that the bridge was quiet from 6:15am onwards and re-opened to traffic at approximately 7:00am.
