Traffic on Yellowknife’s Old Airport Road was disrupted on Tuesday evening by an incident involving multiple vehicles at the Range Lake Road intersection.
At least two vehicles appeared to have suffered significant damage and others were left parked by the side of the road next to police and recovery vehicles.
It was not immediately clear whether anyone was badly hurt.
Old Airport Road was reduced to one operational lane for a time, while the road leaving the adjacent Independent grocery store was temporarily blocked.
All affected vehicles appeared to have been towed by 6:20pm.
