Semi loses load on Hwy 1

The Daily Graphic Staff

Portage Emergency Services were called to a scene on Highway 1 Wednesday night after a westbound semi lost part of its load on the highway.

A witness put in the call and crews from Portage Fire, RCMP, and Manitoba Highways reached the scene approximately 6:41 p.m.

The semi had lost a large number of concrete bricks at the intersection of Highway 1 and Highway 240, which had fallen on the road and needed to be cleared away while the road was blocked.

The road was blocked and the debris was quickly cleaned up and removed from the roadway.

It doesn't appear that any vehicles were damaged in the incident.
