The tractor trailer was hauling several race cars and so crews will spend part of Thursday cleaning up the accident. The RCMP was concerned that the accident could cause environmental damage, but that has been ruled out.

The road will continue to be single lane alternating traffic until the investigation and accident clean up has been completed. For more updates on Highway 29 visit
