One northbound lane of the Henday was closed, leading to big delays for drivers in the area. The far right, northbound lane remained open to traffic.

Just before 8 a.m., traffic was backed up past Callingwood Road. Some drivers were using Whitemud Drive to get around the collision site, which led to delays on that freeway as well.
