(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Roads are slippery this morning, with the third snowfall slamming the city in recent times.
The first collision we were made aware of was out on the highway near the Terry Fox lookout. Police responded to the scene of a single-vehicle that spun out, smashed into the snowbank and ended up in the ditch between the eastbound and southbound lanes.
Gary’s Towing sent out two flatbed trucks to retrieve the vehicle.
Soon after, another vehicle spun out on Highway 11/17 between the Harbour Expressway and Oliver road.
The vehicle was headed north when it apparently spun out into oncoming traffic but dodged a head-on collision and ended up through the snowbank, ultimately resting on the shoulder of the highway.
The motoring public is urged to drive with caution and attention. Remember that when you see first responders working on the roadway, you need to slow down and move over, it’s the law.
Thunder Bay is expected to get around 10 or possibly 15 centimetres of snow from the current weather system that is hitting us.
