Tractor-trailer rollover closes part of Route 2

Route 2 in Inverness is closed between Route 175 and Route 134 due to a vehicle rollover. RCMP say emergency responders are working to clear the area and drivers are being rerouted through Conway.

Officials with the Tyne Valley fire department said it got the call of a tractor-trailer rollover around 4:30 p.m. Friday.

When Chief William Bishop arrived on the scene he said he saw the tractor-trailer "upside down in the middle of the highway." "The truck is completely crossways in the middle of the road," he said. Bishop said the driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Bishop said the fire department is on scene, but is still awaiting a tow truck and it will be "quite a while" before the road is reopened.
