WAWA – Tractor Trailer Removal Underway at Highway 17

A police car rushes to the emergency call with lights turned on

WAWA – On May 23, 2019, members of the Superior East Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police attended the scene of a single motor vehicle collision involving a tractor-trailer. The tractor portion came to rest in the southbound lane of Highway 17 near Agawa Bay. Crews were able to remove the tractor, however, the trailer portion remains off the roadway on a steep embankment.

Crews are currently working to unload the contents of the trailer prior to removing it from the embankment. Beginning this morning, those travelling this stretch of Highway 17 may experience delays as the highway will need to be shut down intermittently in order for crews to remove the trailer. Traffic will be allowed through the area as operations permit
