Delta police are on scene of a single-vehicle crash on Highway 17 .

The crash in the 6500-block westbound, just north of Ladner Truck Road, involves a large truck apparently carrying scrap metal. Pictures from the scene show the truck on its side and its load spilled across both lanes.

DPD traffic section member Const. Ken Usipiuk tweeted the driver escaped serious injury, suffering only “minor bumps.”

Drivers are advised to avoid the area and expect a lengthy closure of the highway.
