Upon arrival, fire crews found passersby had helped the driver of the truck, which was on its side, was out of the vehicle and soon in the care of the BC Ambulance Service. No other vehicles or pedestrians were injured in the incident.

Logs from the truck littered the roadway and into the ditch, even damaging a new fence on a house under construction on the southeast corner.
