A truck incident is causing major delays for drivers in Metro Vancouver.

Pictures from DriveBC show a truck having gotten caught on the Cambie Road overpass of Highway 99 southbound, just past the Oak Street Bridge. The Cambie Road overpass was also damaged in the process, impacting drivers in Richmond.

As of 4:40 pm on Wednesday afternoon, the Cambie Road overpass was closed to westbound traffic, with no clear timeline on when drivers could expect it to open.

The incident has also caused all southbound lanes on Highway 99 to be closed.

The truck in question was cleared from the area, but pictures show that it has caused some damage to the underside of the overpass.
