Icy conditions on the North Road appeared to be responsible for a recent accident.

RCMP responded to a cement truck-trailer unit which had gone off the road on Thursday, November 3 during the day.

The tractor trailer left the road at about the 50 km board, and the responding officer said Highways was requested to try and improve the road conditions.

The tractor-trailer was going down a hill in slippery conditions and slid off the road into the trees and onto its side.

The cab was crushed as it struck a tree, but luckily for the driver,  no serious injuries resulted from the crash.

As the officer was at the scene, he said other semi-trucks attempting to go up the hill from the scene were sliding as they tried to climb the hill.

 

Yellowhead Roads and Bridge (YRB) was responding to deal with the road, according to the officer.
