UPDATED 9:10 A.M. FRIDAY
CROWES MILLS - Late Thursday afternoon traffic in the westbound lanes of Highway 104 near Debert was slowed to a crawl and reduced to one lane after the cargo container from a tractor-trailer became airborne and landed in the ditch.
No injuries were reported and no other vehicles were involved in the mispha, which occurred about 5 p.m. beetween Debert and Truro.
"The box came off the trailer and is in the ditch, but the truck is upright," said RCMP Cpl. Addie Maccallum.
No immediate cause was available for why the container left its trailer bed although winds were high at the time of the incident.
