UPDATE: Logging truck hits van

There were three occupants in the minivan but no injuries were reported.

A logging truck t-boned a minivan at the corner of Second Avenue and Argyle Street at 8:37 a.m. on Feb. 16.

“On approach to the intersection, the logging truck slowed down but failed to come to a complete stop at the stop sign, rolling into the intersection and colliding with the passenger door of the mini van,” said Cpl. Amelia Hayden.

“Weather was noted as a contributing factor as there was light fog and light rain at the time of the crash.”

There were three occupants in the van but no injuries were reported.

The RCMP issued  the logging truck a violation ticket for failing to yield right of way.
