Sideways semi blocks traffic on highway in Kitimat

A semi slowed traffic when it slid sideways on Highway 37S.

A semi truck traveling on Highway 37S slid sideways, blocking traffic between the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce and the Kitamaat Village road.

Smaller vehicles were allowed to drive around it on the shoulder but RCMP were preventing larger vehicles from the attempt because of the high chance they’d end up in the ditch as well.

The truck was still there as of 9:45 a.m. but a tow truck was reportedly on the way to clear the road.

There is no confirmed cause of the incident but drivers should be aware that it is winter driver conditions on the roads and there may be icy patches.
