No molten sulphur released after tractor trailer hits ditch

The trains remained upright, while the tractor ended up on its side. 

The truck was carrying molten sulphur at the time, but luckily there was no release of product or risk to the public. The tanks were emptied, and removed following the towing of the cab. 

The driver sustained minor injuries as a result. 

Slippery roads are being considered a factor in the accident, and as such, RCMP is reminding drivers to slow down as highways are covered in packed snow and ice. 

“Please leave extra time for your trip and call ahead to advise your destination you might be late,” says Sergeant West. “It is always better to go slowly and get their late rather than not getting there at all.”

This is the tenth motor vehicle collision in the Dawson Creek area since Friday, November 6.
