Gust from passing semi-truck flips SUV at Mile 109

A driver and his passenger escaped serious injuries Saturday morning following a single vehicle rollover at Mile 109 of the Alaska Highway, RCMP report.

Fort St. John RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says a Nissan Xterra SUV was travelling north on the highway with a travel trailer around 9:10 a.m. June 13, when it passed a southbound semi-trailer truck.

The turbulence from the passing semi-truck was so great that it flipped the SUV onto its driver side and sent it skidding into the ditch, while the travel trailer flipped multiple times, according to Shelkie.

The male driver, along with his female passenger, escaped the accident uninjured, said Shelkie. The travel trailer was completely destroyed, while the SUV needed to be towed, said Shelkie.

“Be road aware,” she said, “and know that this could happen, and be prepared so that, if you do feel that sudden gust of wind from a passing vehicle, you have control of the wheel.”
