Explosives incident shutsdown secondary highway
OPP had to shutdown a secondary highway when a truck carrying explosives to a gold mine near Cochrane ran off the road on Monday. The closure of Highway 652 was a precautionary measure. The driver skidded off the highway after losing control of his vehicle but landed upright in a snow bank. Mining and explosive experts examined the load, found it was still secure and deemed the site safe. Police re-opened the highway after the cargo was removed.
