Truck flips in Hammmond

Neighbours complain there are almost daily incidents with semis that travel the narrow residential streets.

There were RCMP officers, city crews, tow truck drivers and a handful of head-shaking Hammond residents at the corner of Princess and Wharf on Friday afternoon, after a semi truck and trailer flipped into the ditch.

Hammond residents on scene said incidents with big trucks have become a frequent occurrence in their neighbourhood, and one man said he has asked the city and RCMP to do something about it.

The driver on Friday afternoon was passing another truck at the corner, got too close to the grassy bank on the north side of Wharf, and eventually his trailer slid into the water-filled ditch.

In January, residents complained publicly that trucks cannot safely travel the narrow streets of Hammond.

There have been multiple incidents like Friday’s in the past two months.

More to follow.
