Section of Highway 102 temporarily shutdown following multiple accidents

The RCMP say emergency personnel responded to several crashes on Highway 102 late Tuesday night.

Police say all of the accidents happened between 11:18 p.m. and 12:04 a.m. in the southbound lanes between exits 7 & 8 (Enfield and Elmsdale exits).

Drivers were briefly re-routed onto Highway 2 until the vehicles could be removed. 

It appears heavy rain and water on the road may have been a factor, as RCMP were advising people to slow down due to hydro-planing.

There are no reports of serious injuries.
