Search Underway for Missing Driver in Industrial Mishap
Prince George, B.C. – Authorities are trying to locate the driver of a rig that lost its load above the Cameron Street Bridge traffic circle and then left the scene.
Police, Commercial Vehicle Safety personnel and Prince George Fire Rescue all attended the scene on the on-ramp to Highway 97 above North Nechako Road around 1:20 this afternoon.
They found a flatdeck trailer, an industrial welder and an industrial pump, as well as some fuel, laying on the ground and in the ditch beside the roadway. There was no semi or driver to be found anywhere.
Absorbent material was spread on the ground to soak up the relatively small amount of fuel that had spilled.
Authorities say “the investigation is underway.”
