A semi truck blocked off a lane of traffic on the West Service Road in Meadow Lake for several hours earlier today (Oct. 12).

The incident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. and Meadow Lake community safety officer Joe Hallahan said the truck has since been moved and is currently parked nearby at a roadside pullout. It appears the semi made a right turn out of the Co-op Service Centre’s parking lot and became stuck along the approach.

“I can’t really comment about a specific incident because it’s still ongoing,” Hallahan commented. “Traffic is unobstructed now.”

The truck has VM Transport Ltd. markings and is carrying a shipment from NorSask Forest Products Ltd.
