Two logging trucks collided on the Leo Creek Forest Service Road on Jan. 24, but neither driver was seriously injured.

At 8:27 a.m., RCMP received a call from the Stuart Lake Hospital in Fort St. James where one of the drivers was being treated for minor injuries.

RCMP interviewed the driver, who said he had been driving his loaded logging truck down the Leo Creek Road early on Jan. 24 near the 65 km board when he collided with an empty logging truck near a single lane bridge.

The driver stated he had been calling his mileage, however there may have been some confusion.

The other driver also attended the RCMP but wouldn’t give a statement on the incident.

The loaded ruck spilled the load of logs and one truck required towing from the scene of the incident.
