One person has died in a multi-vehicle crash on Highway 1, just outside of Golden.

Emergency crews responded to a four-vehicle collision just after 3:10 p.m. Tuesday along Highway 1, roughly 20 kilometres west of Golden, police said in a news release.

Two passenger vehicles and two commercial vehicles were involved in the incident. Police did not specify if the person was a passenger or driver.
