There were likely more than a few commuters explaining why they were late on Thursday morning.
Around 7:45 am, emergency crews were called to the busy bridge in response to a seven vehicle pileup.
According to police, a commercial garbage truck rear-ended a Jeep Cherokee leading to a chain reaction of collisions.
Crews treated all involved parties at the scene, with one driver requiring extraction with the assistance of the Kelowna Fire Department.
A second driver was transported to hospital with minor injuries.
The pileup also led to a lengthy stoppage for east-bound traffic trying to cross the bridge.
An investigation into the collision remains ongoing at this time.
