Charges have been laid against the driver of a tractor trailer who hit the ditch and overturned Wednesday afternoon on Jubilee Parkway.

“As far as we know, the truck was headed west bound on Jubilee Parkway, veered off into oncoming traffic and slid into the ditch and sided itself,” said Cpl. Ron Vlooswyk, of the Campbell River RCMP.

The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and released. Vlooswyk said that none of the goods on board were a cause for concern.

No cause for the crash was given.

“There was charges laid under the Motor Vehicle Act,” he said. “It was picked up and towed out and that was that.”
