An overturned truck near Baie Verte yesterday didn't pose any threat to the public, says the company that owned it

“The truck performed to its specification,” said Keith Phelan of NFLD. Hard-Rok. “It’s built for rollovers and it performed remarkably well.”

Investigation into the cause of the accident is still ongoing. The company says it will await the results of a police and insurance investigation, and also conduct its own internal investigation.

A representative from Fire and Emergency Services says crews were on the scene all day Thursday assisting to remediate the situation. Late Thursday the truck was removed and traffic flow was returned to normal.
