A rollover crash involving a logging truck snarled northbound traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway near West Shore Parkway in Langford.
Langford Fire Rescue was called out for the single vehicle crash on Feb. 8 around 1 p.m. said Fire Chief Chris Aubrey. When crews arrived the driver was out of the vehicle and unharmed. Firefighters contained a diesel leak and disconnected power in the truck to ensure the scene was safe.
Fortunately, Aubrey said, the vehicle and logs that spilled filled one lane and shoulder, leaving one lane open for northbound traffic.
Motorists heading over the Malahat can expect delays. Traffic was down to a single lane with Emcon Services assessing the scene and brief road closures expected to remove the logs and the truck itself.
