Highway 6 re-opened

A logging truck rollover east of Lumby closed Highway 6 for several hours Monday morning.

The accident occurred just after 7 a.m. after the truck went into the ditch and then overturned, spilling its load.

"The driver received minor injuries in the accident but was able to get out of the cab of the truck," said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

"He told investigators that he swerved to miss a deer," said Molendyk. "They (investigators) are following up on it."

The road was closed for several hours while crews cleaned up logs and got the truck back up on its wheels. Traffic was detoured around the accident scene.
