It also forced closure of the scene 15 kilometres west of Prince George for about 7 1/2 hours.

It was the second serious incident in the area less than 24 hours.

One person was killed and two others were sent to hospital following a two-vehicle collision early Thursday afternoon at the Chilako Bridge, 20 kilometres west of the city.

The scene was closed until shortly before 7 p.m. to allow investigators to gather evidence although there was a detour around the location.

There was also an incident 38 kilometres east of Vanderhoof on Thursday afternoon that reduced travel to single-lane alternating for a period.
