(THUNDER BAY, ON) โ€“ An early morning collision has delayed traffic on a collision prone highway early today.


It appears that the transport got too close to soft shoulder and ended up on its side.

REAL Concerned Citizen Nick Mendyk tells us that as he was passing the wreck, he saw the driver being extracted.

The collision occurred on Dawson Road just east of McKenzie Road shortly before 8:00 am.

Police, fire and EMS responded to the scene, No serious injuries are expected.


Please avoid the area if possible.

*** UPDATE: The tractor has been removed from the scene, the trailer remains. Emergency crews are on scene sorting out the mess.

Flaggers are directing traffic. If you must drive through the area, exercise caution.

  1. there’s a paved shoulder and guard rails no soft area. Another case of transport driver that should be banned from driving! Hurry up Tbay and close 102 to transports!


      Talk about an ignorant comment.
      The trucks were driving that road long before the majority of the people starting living there. Should be ban the Transports on 11/17 after an accident there too? I’m mean, with your logic it’s the right thing to do.

  2. I woudnt call banning transports an ignorant comment. Isnโ€™t that why the highway was built?

    Surely the residents off 102/Dawson would love to have a sense of safety when they have their kids wait for the bus, without the fear of being run down or pelted by one of the drivers piss bottles, or worrying they might be run off the road by a novice .. or senior transport driver, not to mention waking up and seeing your road or driveway closed off because of transport accidents.

    Letโ€™s be realistic, itโ€™s enough driving that stretch in any season during bad conditions let alone during the winter on a good day.
