A logging truck has flipped and lost its load in the S-curve east of Cathedral Grove, blocking traffic in both directions, Port Alberni RCMP Cpl. Jen Allan said.
The RCMP have closed Highway 4 leading out of Port Alberni until the accident is clear, Allan said. The accident happened at approximately 11:30 a.m.
An RCMP spokesperson from Oceanside detachment in Parksville said the road won’t be clear until at least 2 p.m. as crews move the truck and clear the logs off the highway. There was no word from the scene whether anyone was injured in the accident.
