On Wednesday afternoon several Everything Geraldton readers alerted us to an incident where a truck's trailer had rolled north of the 440 road house.
Geraldton Police have provided the following information:
- The incident occurred at around 4:20pm on the North West Coastal Hwy in Glenfield.
- Mid-West Traffic Enforcement Group and Department for Fire and Emergency Services responded to the crash.
- The truck trailer was carrying dry ammonia nitrate.
- Initial indications suggest that the truck trailer lost traction upon connecting with the gravel verge.
- This resulted in the trailer rolling independently from the truck, causing the trailer to break away from the prime mover.
- The trailer rolled onto the left side of the road, causing spillage of the dry ammonia nitrate into nearby bush and paddock area.
- The scene was positively assessed by the Department for Fire and Emergency Services for any risks associated with the crash.
- The driver did not sustain any injuries.
