Semi crash blocks southbound Perimeter Highway near Oak Bluff

WINNIPEG – A semi-trailer truck spilled groceries on the Perimeter Highway near Oak Bluff when it rolled over early Monday morning, police say.

The 45-year-old semi driver wasn’t hurt when the truck rolled at about 1:30 a.m. at McGillivray Boulevard (Highway 3), Headingley RCMP said.

Southbound lanes of the Perimeter Highway were still closed at 11:15 a.m., although a northbound lane that had been closed throughout the morning rush hour was reopened at that time. Traffic was being rerouted onto a side road while the road was cleaned up.
