Emergency crews responded with lights and sirens to reports of a vehicle rollover near Highway 97 and Crystal Waters Road Tuesday, Oct. 27, only to find it was an incident that occurred yesterday.

Commuters were met with slow-moving traffic as emergency crews responded to multiple vehicle incidents that saw two northbound lanes closed around Crystal Waters Road Oct. 26.

Another vehicle incident affected southbound traffic near Gatzke Road.
