“I can confirm it was a teen who was involved in the accident. He was taken to hospital, but I do not know the extent of his injuries," said Leykauf.

She said officers are still on scene as of 4 p.m. The eastbound curb lane is shutdown to traffic until further notice.

Delta police will provide updates on when the area will be full re-opened to traffic through their social media channels (Facebook and Twitter).
