A minor rollover caused the southbound lanes of Highway 2 to slow for several hours this afternoon.
RCMP, EMS and members of the Ponoka County East District Fire Department were called to the scene just north of Ponoka at approximately 2 p.m. A U-Haul van hauling a trailer rolled and flung debris all along the highway causing traffic to stop.
At the time of the incident both southbound lanes were blocked but witnesses helped push the van off of the highway into the median.
It took crews several hours to clear the roadway due to the amount of material that was thrown from the trailer, but it is believed there were no major injuries from the incident. Traffic was slow going on the road for some time.
The cause of the rollover is not known but believed that at some point the motorists lost control of the trailer, which then rolled.
