A truck containing liquid explosives went off the road near the intersection of Route 414 and Route 410 earlier this morning, causing a major traffic back-log.

According to members of the Baie Verte Volunteer Fire Department, who are currently on the scene directing traffic, vehicles are being stopped a kilometre in each direction due to safety of the public.

Crews are reportedly handling the contents of the truck, which is overturned in the ditch.

RCMP say Route 414 and Route 410 will be closed in both directions until further notice, meaning the only road out of Baie Verte is unavailable.

Crews on the scene say no one was injured in the accident.

More details will be posted as they become available.
