Traffic alert: Accident on the CRH, both lanes affected

Drivers are warned of traffic as a result of an accident on the Churchill Roosevelt Highway (CRH) after a car managed to perch itself atop a concrete barrier dividing the eastbound and westbound lanes.

Video footage shared to social media around 4:00 pm showed a white vehicle balancing on top of a concrete barrier near to the Courts Megastore in El Socorro.

The Ministry of Works and Transport advised in a Tweet that traffic is likely to build up as a result and drivers should seek alternative routes. 

"Good Evening all. Please be advised there is an accident on the CRH Hwy Eastbound and Westbound near the Courts Megastore. Due to this incident we are experiencing congestion on both Eastbound and Westbound."

The Ministry said the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) is on site to assist.
