A late morning crash on the QEII highway has sent one person to hospital and prompted the closure of several lanes of the highway.

Shortly after 11:00 a.m., emergency crews responded to a crash involving multiple vehicles between the Didsbury and Carstairs overpasses.

EMS spokesperson Adam Loria says as many as ten vehicles were involved in the crash and EMS crews assessed a number of people at the scene.

Only one patient, a woman in her twenties, suffered serious injuries and crews transported her by ambulance to the Foothills Medical Centre in stable condition. Officials believe the woman was struck by a vehicle.

RCMP continue to investigate the crash. As of 3:00 p.m., all lanes of the highway have reopened to traffic.
