A multi-vehicle crash on westbound Highway 1 just before 176 Street caused traffic chaos, with delays at one point backing it up as far as 264 Street in Langley.
Traffic was blocked shortly after the accident at around 5 p.m., and re-opened shortly before 8 p.m.
Surrey RCMP say the accident involved an off-duty officer, who was taken to hospital with a minor head injury.

A caller to CKNW’s sister station AM730 says police are also at the scene.
“They’ve got it taped off and there are people standing in the middle of the highway. There are cars on the side of the road and I don’t know how long it’s going to be before they open that up.”
Motorists were asked to avoid the area.
