A portion of the Trans-Canada Highway in Antigonish County was reopened Monday morning after a fuel tanker and another transport truck collided.
RCMP said the accident happened on Highway 104 near Exit 30 in James River, just west of Antigonish, at approximately 1:30 a.m.
One driver was taken to St. Martha's Regional Hospital in Antigonish with minor injuries and later released. The second truck driver was not injured.
Fire officials and a hazardous materials team responded to the crash because there was a fuel tanker involved, but the investigation confirmed there are no leaks, said RCMP.
"Roads were snow covered and slippery at the time and conditions are considered a contributing factor to the collision," RCMP Cpl. Shannon Fear said in a release.
A portion of the highway was closed for almost 10 hours on Monday.
