Overturned Tanker Truck Update

The driver suffered undisclosed injuries this morning, when a tanker truck overturned on the Clayhurst Road near the 240 Road.

The RCMP puts the time of the roll-over at about 7.45.

It adds the truck was transporting a H2S contaminated substance and, its tanks were suspected to be leaking.

The trucking company and a clean-up crew were called to scene to assess the risk to the public.

More on that from RCMP Constable Jackelynn Passarell….

The clean-up crew is now transferring the contaminated substance from the compromised tanker, into a secure one.

A section of the Clayhurst road, extending about two kilometers, on either side of the crash site, is closed, indefinitely.

However, the Clayhurst Bridge remains open and unaffected by the roll-over…and, traffic is being rerouted around the crash site on the 240 Road.

The injured driver was transferred to Fort St. John hospital.
