Spread across the lanes

A tractor-trailer unit blocks both lanes of Highway 1 east of Canoe Wednesday morning after the driver lost control and sideswiped an oncoming eastbound semi before stopping on the shoulder of the eastbound lane. Neither the drivers, out of Winnipeg (westbound) or Kamloops sustained injuries. Slushy, icy conditions contributed to the collision.  - Lachlan Labere photo
