BOWDEN — The northbound lanes of Highway 2 have been reopened after a northbound semi-trailer rolled over early this morning about a kilometre north of the Highway 587 overpass.
The RCMP were dispatched to the incident at 5:50 a.m. The Bowden Fire Department, EMS and Main Roads were also dispatched to the scene.
The driver and lone occupant of the semi-tractor was assessed by EMS at the scene and found to have no injuries. He’s been charged with failing to maintain the centre of the lane under the Traffic Safety Act.
The semi ended up in the median.
Northbound traffic was re-routed onto Highway 2A at the Highway 587 overpass for several hours while the incident was investigated and the scene cleaned up.
