News Release from Nottawasaga OPP

On November 17, 2017 at approximately 9:00 a.m., members of the Nottawasaga Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), assisted by members of the New Tecumseth Fire Department, responded to a report of a transport truck rollover on the 8th Line, just west of Beeton in the Town of New Tecumseth.
A truck loaded with sewage was travelling westbound through Beeton, when it decided to pull to the roadside, just west of town. As the truck slowed and pulled over, the gravel shoulder gave out and the truck rolled over into the ditch.
The 56 year old male driver was transported by Simcoe County Paramedics to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The 8th Line was closed at Tottenham Road as well as Main Street W at Dayfoot Street in Beeton.
