A semi tractor trailer tipped over and spilled a load of scrap steel along the side of the Duke Point Highway onramp in Nanaimo.
Access from the Trans Canada Highway northbound to Duke Point will be shut down for the next two hours as crews clear up after a semi truck crash. The 22-wheel truck was turning right, from the Trans Canada Highway onto the Duke Point Highway, when it tipped over off the left shoulder of the onramp and ended up on its side.
The driver was not injured in the crash.
Cranberry Volunteer Fire Department, Nanaimo RCMP and B.C. Ambulance Service personnel were called to the scene at about 4:25 p.m.
