Notre-Dame reopened in both directions after truck accident

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.
