A fuel tanker truck overturned on the Schofield Highway Monday morning, causing a road closure until late in the day.

Trail and Greater District RCMP Detachment temporarily closed roads in the Warfield area—between Wellington Avenue and the Webster School area at

Murray Drive—as a result of a commercial vehicle incident.

Road conditions are believed to be the culprit in the incident after a heavy snowfall that started Sunday fell unabated into Monday. No one was injured in the mishap.

Boundary Regional Fire Rescue and tow vehicles attended the scene.

Small vehicles detoured through Bingay Road and large vehicles were required to re-route through Castlegar and used Highway 3.

The road was declared reopened just before 11 p.m.
