UPDATE: Kamloops RCMP have confirmed the driver of the motorcycle died in the crash and, as of about noon, announced the three closed lanes of the Halston Bridge had been reopened. Const. Crystal Evelyn said police are still investigating the crash and more information will be released as it becomes available.
A serious accident on the Halston Connector has closed the eastbound lanes of Halston Bridge as of 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday (April 27), while one westbound lane is also closed.
As a result, police are asking drivers to avoid the span as traffic is backing up.
Kamloops RCMP Const. Crystal Evelyn said the lane closures are a result of a motor vehicle collision involving a truck and motorcycle on the Hallston Bridge at about 9:15 a.m.
Evelyn said more information will be released as it becomes available, noting motorists should avoid the area and find alternative routes.
