Logging truck flips on Hwy 97

A logging truck lies on its side as spilled logs litter Hwy. 97 following an accident this morning about 8 a.m. on the corner just north of the Okanagan River Channel bridge just past West Bench Hill Road. It is believed the truck driver escaped injury and no other vehicles were struck by the logs, a number of which went onto the southbound lanes. Northbound traffic was re-routed through the West Bench area briefly before crews were able to open one of the lanes. Further details were unavailable.  - Mark Brett/Western News
