At around 3 p.m., the City of Calgary’s transportation departmenton westbound Glenmore Trail Southeast at Blackfoot Trail Southeast, at the merge lane from southbound Blackfoot Trail.
AHS EMS confirmed to Global News that one person was taken to hospital.
Minutes after the incident was reported by the city on social media, Calgary police closed westbound Glenmore Trail from Blackfoot Trail to Centre Street, advising motorists to avoid the area and find alternative routes.
