Travellers going east are being rerouted on Hwy. 11 due to a multi-vehicles collision.

Red Deer Emergency Services are responding to a multi-vehicle collision on Hwy. 11 east, around the Alberta Springs Golf Course.

The east bound highway has been closed, and motorists are advised to use Hwy. 11A if travelling from Sylvan Lake to Red Deer.

Blackfalds RCMP, which are responding to the incident, said delays are expected for at least the next hour.

At this time, only minor injuries are being reported.
