(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Details are few at this point regarding a pickup truck that ended up in the ditch along a notorious stretch of road.
As is tradition, for the Dawson Road / Highway 102 stretch, as soon as some snow flies, vehicles end up involved in collisions or rollovers, or both.
So far what we know is that a pickup truck ended up in the ditch of Dawson Road / Highway 102 near the intersection of Mapleward Road late this evening. We are not certain at this point if another vehicle was involved as there was only one vehicle at the incident but we do know it happened around 10:00 pm.
Police, fire and ambulance all responded to the situation. Luckily, nobody was injured. A residents garbage box was destroyed during the collision as the truck came barreling into the ditch, taking out the garbage box and flipping onto its roof. The resident who suffered the loss of the garbage box would like citizens to consider keeping their winter tires on a bit longer.
Tow trucks were on scene removing the truck from the ditch and hauling it off back to their yard. Great work was done by all first responders including the tow truck team. When you see first responders, including tow trucks, please move over, slow down, and give them room to work safely.
City council has pushed back the date for making a decision on whether to push cross-country tractor-trailer traffic off the road and onto the Trans-Canada Highway / Highway 11/17.
