Yesterday afternoon, police needed to direct commuters away from going northbound on Highway 16 as an empty hog transport truck has reportedly rolled over. Both lanes of 16 are blocked off due to this incident.

Traffic had to be rerouted for several hours as the mishap was cleaned up and the semi-trailer towed out of the way. No official information regarding injuries or damages were released however social media reports say the trailer was loaded with hogs. Emergency Services attended the scene.

More details will follow should they become available.
