Two crashes close together slowing highway traffic near Ladysmith

Truck and trailer rolled in northbound lane, another crash happened 200 metres away

Two crashes on the Trans Canada Highway have slowed the commute this morning north of Ladysmith.

A pickup truck towing a trailer that crashed and rolled on its side in a northbound lane is slowing both northbound and southbound traffic near the Nanaimo River bridges in Cassidy.

No serious injuries were reported. Cranberry Volunteer Fire Department is rerouting northbound traffic to Cedar Road.

A separate crash, a rear-ender, happened about 200 metres south of the other crash, and there were no reported injuries in that one, either.
