Truck Flips Over North Nechako Rd. Embankment
Prince George, B.C. – For the second time this weekend the on-ramp to Highway 97 from the traffic circle at the north end of the Cameron Street bridge has been the scene of a vehicular accident.
At approximately 5:15 Sunday afternoon emergency personnel responded to a single-vehicle accident off North Nechako Road, between Ongman Road and the traffic circle. They found a pick-up truck which had come down the embankment, flattened small trees and brush and flipped onto its roof.
At this time it is not know how many people were in the truck when it went over the bank. Police at the scene did not talk about the accident. There was a civilian in the passenger seat of the police cruiser as it left the scene. Two ambulances left the area without lights and sirens on.
Early Saturday afternoon a rig towing a trailer, industrial welder and pump lost the load off the side of the same on-ramp while heading up from the traffic circle. The driver unhooked and left the scene before police arrived.
