Crash on St. James Bridge sends one to hospital

One person is in hospital after a crash on the St. James Bridge Tuesday afternoon.

Winnipeg police said the crash happened just after 1 p.m., sending one person to hospital in critical condition. Police did not have information on how many vehicles were involved.

The City of Winnipeg said the crash is blocking southbound median and middle lanes on the bridge. Traffic is asked to keep to the right and be cautious while passing the emergency vehicles. 

Police said the closure is expected to last through rush hour and is causing traffic to back up in the area. Drivers are asked to take alternate routes.
