97 North to remain closed for at least 3 hours
Prince George, B.C.- Highway 97 north, about 15 kms south of Bear Lake, is closed and is expected to remain closed for another 3 to four hours.
Two semis collided at that location this morning, blocking the highway. The good news is no one has been seriously injured.
There has been a significant amount of diesel fuel spilling from the fuel tanks of the semis, as a result, Provincial Emergency Coordination has been contacted to deal with the spill.
It is expected the highway will remain closed for 3 to four hours to allow for the clearing of the scene and the fuel. After that, it’s anticipated the highway will be re-opened to single lane alternating traffic.
