A semi truck travelling northbound on Highway 99 crashed Wednesday morning, blocking one lane of traffic.

The crash occurred at 11:17 a.m. when the driver of the semi lost control and struck the barrier on the side of the highway, just north of the Hwy 17A River Road overpass in Ladner.

The crash reduced northbound traffic on Highway 99 down to two lanes. The RCMP's Deas Island Traffic Services division estimates the lane closure will last at least four hours. The counterflow will not be in effect on the George Massey Tunnel for the Wednesday afternoon rush hour.
