Canada Post driver in hospital after ice smashes windshield at Massey Tunnel

Incident happened on Richmond side of the Massey Tunnel

A Canada Post driver was taken to hospital on Friday after a large piece of ice smashed through his windshield at the Massey Tunnel.

The incident happened shortly after 1:30 p.m. on the Richmond side of the tunnel, RCMP said.

The man, a 49-year-old resident of Surrey, was taken to hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

No one else had been in the vehicle.

The highway’s southbound lanes have fully re-opneed.

“We are continuing to investigate in an attempt to determine the source of the ice,” said Staff Sgt. Janelle Shoihet.

Anyone with information or dashcam video is asked to contact Lower Mainland Traffic Services at 604-526-9744.
