(PEARL, ON) – Last night, shortly after 1:00 am, the Shuniah Fire and Emergency services along with the Ontario Provincial Police and Superior North EMS responded to a single vehicle rollover on Highway 11/17.
The incident unfolded roughly 2 kilometers west of Pearl. A tractor-trailer unit had left the roadway and rolled.
No life-threatening injuries are expected as a result of this incident. It is believed that the driver swerved to avoid a collision and ended up in the rollover.
It is important to always give transports plenty of room when they are behind us or approaching in an oncoming lane. They weigh many times more than an average vehicle and take much longer to stop. Drive safe and always remain cautious.
Anyone with photos of this incident are asked to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
