A mudslide has covered a section of the Trans-Canada Highway between Hope and Chilliwack and there is a report the slide has struck a C.N. freight train.
Twenty cars of the train may have been hit by the debris.
The slide closed the route in both directions for a time, but the eastbound lanes were quickly reopened while a detour is in effect for the westbound lanes.
It's not known how long it will take to clear the slide.
