Emergency crews were dealing Thursday morning with an road accident just outside Corner Brook.

A transport truck ended up in a ditch just after midnight near the off-ramp to Massey Drive, a small town just outside the city.

The driver sustained minor injuries.

The truck, which was carrying asphalt, was seriously damaged in the incident.

The off-ramp was closed until 4:30 a.m., while crews removed the truck and cleaned up spilled diesel fuel.
