Const. Ed Sanchuk, who was on scene, says the car was travelling eastbound on Highway 3 following a pickup truck when a load from the truck “flew” off the vehicle.

“The load flew out of the back of the pickup truck, causing the driver to swerve into the westbound lanes, at which time both vehicles collided,” Sanchuk said in a Periscope post.
