NEW HARRIS SETTLEMENT, N.S. —

A driver and passenger escaped with minor injuries after a tractor-trailer overturned on Highway 105 at the bottom of Kellys Mountain in New Harris Settlement, Victoria County.

The single vehicle accident happened shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday.

A preliminary investigation has determined the load shifted on a westbound tractor-trailer on a sharp turn, causing the tractor-trailer to roll over on its side, according to the RCMP.

Debris was scattered across the highway.

Both lanes of traffic remain open, however motorists can expect delays. It's anticipated to take several hours for the tractor-trailer and debris to be removed from the location.

The RCMP says the collision remains under investigation.
