by The Canadian Press
GRASSLAND, Alta. – A busy northern Alberta highway was left impassable after crews moved in to clean up molten sulphur that leaked from a flipped semi-trailer truck.
The single-vehicle accident happened Monday on Highway 63, east of the community of Grassland.
RCMP say no one was hurt when the truck rolled and ended up in a ditch.
Detours have been set up.
Officials expect it will be quite some before the area is cleared.
Grassland is about 180 kilometres north of Edmonton.
