A truck rollover shut down traffic on Highway 17 for hours on Thursday morning.
No one was harmed in the dramatic incident, but traffic was snarled for most of the day while crews cleaned up the mess left from the lost load.
It’s the first time in more than a year that there’s been a rollover at the intersection of Highway 17 and Highway 99, which typically sees many.
In 2014, there were five truck rollovers.
That stopped when two Delta police officers spotted the problem and recommended a fix.
Delta Police Constables John Merryman and Mike Whitely found several fixes to the problem, including changes to lane design, signage and regrading the corner.
After those changes, there were no rollovers, until Thursday morning.
Police believe the causes may be a result of driver error and a load shift, which at speed, could have caused the semi to tip.
Fines against the driver are being considered, Delta police say.
