An early morning motor vehicle accident is the reason many in Langford are without power Monday morning.
Initially, the outage was even affecting traffic lights in the Millstream area. As a result, the West Shore RCMP are on scene to direct traffic flow while the accident is cleaned up.
Currently, Millstream Road is closed from Bear Mountain Parkway to Treanor Avenue.
According to BC Hydro, the accident and resulting outage happened at around 6:50 a.m.
Since then, crews have arrived on scene to reinstate power to those affected. Around 1,000 BC Hydro customers have been without power this morning due to this accident.
