Nobody was injured in an incident where a semi-trailer struck a bridge this past Thursday near Minnedosa.
Police say they took the call on September 7, at approximately 11:35 a.m., as Spruce Plains RCMP received a report that a semi-trailer transporting farm equipment had become lodged under the Canadian Pacific Railway overpass on Highway 10 in the RM of Minto-Odanah.
Traffic in the area was affected for approximately two hours as officers responded and observed that the farm equipment loaded on the semi-trailer was too high and collided with the bridge, causing the semi to become stuck.
The Minnedosa Fire Department responded to the collision to assist.
A tow company was called to clear the vehicle and free up the lane. CP Railway was called so they were aware of the incident and could examine and ensure the integrity of the bridge.
The damage to the bridge appears minor, and the investigation continues.
