Highway 19a is now open after being closed in both directions earlier this evening due to a fatal accident, Drive BC reports.
The highway was closed in both directions 15 km north of Hamm Road to 15 km south of Campbell River because of a head-on crash in the McGimpsey Road area. One person had to cut out of a vehicle by Campbell River firefighters.
At 5:53 p.m., Drive BC reported that the road had been re-opened.
RCMP are expected to update this story tomorrow.
