The tractor trailer had been slowing down for snow removal equipment ahead of it. Both vehicles received extensive damage, but there were no injuries to their occupants.
A second tractor trailer made the quick decision to go off the road and into a ditch to avoid the other vehicles. RCMP say this "no doubt" prevented serious injury to those involved in the collision.
Weather is considered an "obvious" factor in this crash, and drivers are reminded to slow down, increase following distance and pay strict attention when road conditions are poor.
