A truck lost control and left the Trans Canada Highway this morning, crushing a guardrail and sliding down an embankment. RCMP say the truck rolled before it came to a stop. Two occupants, a male and female, were brought to hospital with minor injuries. The Trans Canada Highway was blocked for half an hour while a tow truck removed the vehicle.

Roads are very wet and police advise drivers to be cautious and slow down.
