Sailings out of Horseshoe Bay experienced delays after an asphalt truck got stuck on the loading ramp while trying to board a ferry.
The truck got stuck while trying to board the Queen of Surrey, forcing the early-morning sailing to Langdale to be delayed for more than three hours.
The Queen of Coquitlam was dispatched for passengers awaiting the Queen of Surrey’s arrival.
Just after 10:30 a.m., B.C. Ferries said the truck had been cleared and the 9:50 a.m. sailing of the Queen of Surrey departed 40 minutes behind schedule. The Queen of Coquitlam would take remaining passengers to Langdale.
This isn’t the first time a stuck truck has led to delays on B.C. Ferries.
Two years ago, a truck loaded with hay got stuck while trying to board a ferry at Horseshoe Bay during an unusually low tide. Several sailings were cancelled at that time.
