Truck carrying wind mill tower topples over near The Forks

Traffic is delayed on Route 201 near The Forks, after a truck carrying a wind tower rolled onto its side.

It happened in Johnson Mountain Township Monday morning, according to Jackman Town Manager Matt Pineo, who was at the scene.

According to Pineo, the rear steering linkage locked up as the truck was climbing uphill, causing the wheels of the truck to go sideways.

The truck took out about 400 feet of guardrail, says Pineo, as well as a utility pole.

No one was injured. The truck was out of Canada.

The wind tower is still attached to the trailer of the truck.

The northbound lane of Route 201. otherwise known as the Old Canada Road, is blocked.

Power was knocked out to folks in the area.
