A loaded logging truck failed to make a corner and dumped its load on Tuesday, March 13.
At around 10 a.m. on the Tache Highway, the driver reported he felt his load shift as he went around what drivers call “wake up corner,” less than 10 km past the Apollo Mill site, according to RCMP.
The truck ended up on its side on the south side of the road and the load of logs was dumped alongside the road and into the ditch.
The southbound lane was subsequently blocked for three to four hours.
The accident is still under investigation by the RCMP and Commercial Vehicle Inspection and nothing criminal is suspected at this time.
Snow began to fall while RCMP were on site, but they reported the roads were fairly clear and in decent condition when the accident took place.
The driver sustained only minor cuts and bruises according to RCMP, and his dog, who was in the vehicle as well, was also uninjured in the crash.
