A detached logging trailer caused traffic delays at the Sande Overpass in Terrace Tuesday morning after blocking the left-turning lane going west on Hwy 16 for three hours. At approximately 7:10 a.m., a truck from Main Logging Ltd. was hauling a trailer of timber over the bridge when the driver noticed the hitch had broken off the truck turning onto the overpass. Nathan Voogd, roads area manager from the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure says that the incident is uncommon and that the driver made the right choice to stop. “He did a good job of actually preventing it from getting worse, he noticed it right away and put the trailer breaks on before anything happened,” says Voogd.
