The driver of a tractor-trailer sustained only minor injuries when the truck he was driving left the eastbound off-ramp near Massey Drive shortly after midnight.

The RNC, Corner Brook Fire Department and paramedics from Western Health responded to the single-vehicle collision, which left the tractor-trailer in the ditch. 

The tractor-trailer sustained extensive damages as a result of the incident.

The eastbound Exit 6 off-ramp was closed to traffic until 4:30 a.m. this morning.

The Department of Environment was also dispatched to the collision scene due to the leakage of diesel fuel from the tractor-trailer.

The investigation into this matter is ongoing.
