BACKGROUND: A logging trucked flipped over on the Sande Overpass last week, spilling its cargo onto the adjacent lane.

The truck had been turning right onto the overpass from Hwy 16 eastbound when it tipped on the driver’s side. There are no injuries and no other vehicles were damaged. The driver was taken to hospital as a precaution.

The incident is similar to a 1986 accident on the Sande Overpass in which a young woman was killed instantly.

The government and police have long said large trucks on the overpass is a public health risk.
