An accident involving a truck that had shut down the Notre-Dame Street in both directions between Viau and Dickson has been cleared away.

The road is now re-opened.

The truck was carrying a piece of construction equipment.

When it passed underneath a railway overpass, the CAT digger struck the structure and was knocked off the flatbed.

In addition to righting the CAT and clearing away the accident debris, crews also inspected to determine whether the overpass is safe for rail traffic.

"Everyone is paying tax dollars everyone should have a right to share it equally, whether you are walking, biking; whether you have kids on the back of your bike or whether you have a skateboard or rollerskates."

    "We're going towards a society where people have multiple choices in terms of their mobility. If we start limiting people were forcing them to go to things like their cars, that's not what you want, you want people to be healthy,you want people to be healthy so skateboarding, biking, walking, running --- do it."

    A small handful were less enthused to be sharing the roads with skateboards, particular the more hardcore cycling ethusiasts and those with biking in their job description. Read More
