A driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries after a dump truck rolled over this morning, spilling organic waste south of Old Lakelse Lake Drive and Copper Mountain Road in Thornhill.
Terrace RCMP received a request from Emergency Health Services around 9:35 a.m. on May 3 to assist with the accident. Black tire marks are visible along the road.
DriveBC says the road was initially closed while crews removed the dump truck, and was reduced to single lane alternating traffic between the Thornhill Transfer Station and Jackpine Flats while cleanup continues.
Around 4 p.m., the Ministry of Transportation Skeena District said two-lane traffic should resume within the hour.
