Earlier this evening, Airdrie RCMP, along with EMS and the city's fire department responded to a four-vehicle collision in the vicinity of 8th Street and Veterans Boulevard.

Initially, police received information that the multi-vehicle collision involved three cars, but upon arrival, it was found that four cars were involved.

Motorists reported heavy traffic congestion due to lanes being blocked off for some time, earlier on Friday. 

The scene has since been cleared.
