Prince George, B.C. – Emergency crews responded to a two-vehicle crash on the Old Cariboo Highway at Johnson Road this afternoon.
A witness tells 250News it happened at about 12:45 p.m. and involved an SUV and a logging truck.
No word yet on the cause of the crash or any possible injuries though it has slowed traffic in the area.
Just a guess – – the logging truck won….
That stretch of road is long overdue for major repairs. After all it is an alternate route into downtown from the airport. Not saying this was a factor into this mishap. Just saying
Help me understand! Every time there is an incident on the highway, everyone is quick to blame roads and the condition they are in. The way I see it, the roads can be very bad with pot holes and deteriorating surfacing however, by driving with caution, you can maneuver through it safely. Add the impatient driver into the equation, will increase the chance of an incident to occur.People just need to learn to slow down!
Just think winter is coming and 80% of the drivers cannot recover from a slide and just itching to get out on the roads, get dash cams logging truck drivers …your going to need them.
Last winter I saw more big rigs in the ditch than any other type of vehicle out on the highway and the majority of those were logging trucks, fully loaded logging trucks!
Of all of the vehicles on the roads, the ones that cause me the most worry are the fully loaded logging trucks barrelling down the road towards me, straddling the centre line with the pedal to the metal!
More dash cams on logging trucks? Great idea!
Came back from Jasper last Week and drove this Way to Town, nice Road and little Traffic.
