Crews were on scene around 9:45 a.m. removing a badly-damaged container from a semi-truck from the road. At that time, traffic was backed up to the Annis Road exit.
A tow-truck is moving a pretty badly beaten container off the road. The salesperson at @AgassizObserver said it looked like the semi was backwards on the road, but it’s hard to tell from the angle I was looking at. pic.twitter.com/d66AnjOgHl
