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.
