[IMAGES] Highway 20: Accident involving trailer causes monster traffic jam< /p> UPDATE DAY

A camper who rolled over caused a massive traffic jam on Highway 20 on Sunday in Saint-Léonard-d'Aston, in the Centre-du-Québec region.

 

According to information from the Sûreté du Québec (QS), the accident occurred around 11:05 a.m. and involved three vehicles. “There were no serious injuries,” said Stéphane Tremblay, spokesperson for the SQ.

However, this accident caused a monster traffic jam that seemed to extend for almost 15 km. Highway 20 has been closed westbound indefinitely while the camper is being towed.

“An accident involving a trailer requires a crane to allow reopening. This should take 2 or 3 hours. Please avoid the area. The congestion stretches over several km,” said Quebec Transport Minister François Bonnardel on Twitter.
