UPPER MLAGASH – At 7:25 a.m. yesterday, a single vehicle collision involving a tractor trailer occurred on Smith Road in Upper Malagash. The driver and sole occupant of the truck was injured and the Jaws of Life, a large excavator, and a large tow truck were required to extricate him.

Several volunteer fire departments assisted police at the scene. The driver was transported to hospital via LifeFlight, and his injuries were later determined to be non life-threatening.

Smith Road was closed for several hours while an RCMP collision analyst examined the scene for evidence. The road was re-opened later that afternoon. The investigation is ongoing.
