Cars being diverted off Route 9 westbound at Parkerville Road

I don’t have much detail on this yet, but word has it a car accident has closed both directions of Route 9 somewhere near Deerfoot Road. Apparently, the accident caused power lines to fall across both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Route 9.

Westbound traffic is being diverted at Parkerville Road. I don’t know how eastbound traffic is being routed around the scene.

The accident happened around 7:30 pm. I drove by Parkerville at 9:30 pm and it appeared traffic was still being detoured.

No word on when the highway will be reopened, or if there were any injuries.

Update: I checked with the police at around midnight and they had reopened one lane in each direction.
