Semi truck is pulled from Cameron Lake

A semi-truck is being removed from Cameron Lake March 2 after it crashed and flipped over concrete barriers on Feb. 21 near Angel Rock.

A semi-truck is being removed from Cameron Lake today (March 2) after it crashed and flipped over concrete barriers on the morning of Sunday, Feb. 21 near Angel Rock.

Removal vehicles are at the scene and traffic is slow in both directions near the crash site.

Air bags have been attached to the semi-truck, that was at an unknown depth in the lake, and is being floated towards a crane for removal.

The 2002 Freightliner Truck and trailer was heading inbound to Port Alberni when the driver lost control and drove off the highway near Angel Rock according Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Jesse Forman. The truck’s trailer leaned and flipped, dragging the tractor over the concrete and into the lake, spilling oil and Hemlock woodchips.

The driver, a 45-year-old male and passenger, a 49-year-old female, both from Campbell River, escaped the vehicle with relatively minor injuries and were treated by BC Ambulance personnel.
