Run off the road

A driver travelling east on the Trans-Canada Highway near Pierre’s Point had a close call on March 5 after being forced off the roadway. A vehicle travelling in the opposite direction attempted to pass a semi unit on snowy roads and was unable to return to the appropriate lane prior to meeting oncoming traffic.

There was no injury to the driver of the vehicle who was forced into the ditch.

Police have obtained the licence plate number of the offending driver and will be following up.
