COBEQUID PASS – The driver of a tractor trailer wasn’t harmed when a tire blew, forcing the truck into the woods where it overturned.
The incident occurred at around 1:30 a.m. Monday, about one kilometer east of the toll plaza on the Trans Canada Highway.
Colchester RCMP Sgt. Al Affleck said the report wasn’t clear which direction the driver was travelling.
“They were carrying some dangerous goods – paint and batteries – so the HazMat team was called out to assess the situation and do any clean up,” he said.
