Several cars have slid off the road into the ditch along the Perimeter Highway between McGillivray Boulevard and Wilkes Avenue, with one person already sent to hospital with undetermined injuries, RCMP are reporting.
At least five RCMP vehicles and emergency crews have responded to the multi-vehicle incident, which occurred around 3:30 p.m. this afternoon.
"We’re asking for drivers to please slow down," RCMP spokeswoman Tara Seel said.
RCMP are also advising drivers to:
- increase following distance between other vehicles as stopping distance on an icy road is double the stopping distance on a dry one
- drive with caution
- keep focused on the road
- prepare for delays
