Waterloo Regional Police confirm a medical call briefly shut down southbound lanes on Ira Needles Boulevard in Kitchener.

It happened Thursday morning around 11 a.m.

Lanes were blocked between Highland and Highview Drive as emergency crews rushed to the scene.

It’s because a male experienced a 'medical incident' while riding his electric scooter at Penelope Drive.

No other details are immediately available, but Ira Needles has since reopened in the area.
