(LAKE HELEN, ON) – Yet another northern Ontario winter crash. The north could really benefit from some better road maintenance and some divided highway, no?
A transport truck left the road around 9:00 am this morning and ended up making contact with the lake. The incident is believed to be a single vehicle incident.
It appears that the occupants managed to get out of the vehicle and have not sustained any life-threatening injuries.
Anyone travelling in the area are urged to remain cautious and drive safely at all times.
Do not forget that it is the law to “slow down” and “move over” when first responders are working on the side of the road, this includes tow trucks.
Lake Helen is located along Highway 11, just a bit north of Nipigon.
