ROLL OVER: The driver of a tractor trailer that rolled over near Highway 19 and Memorial Avenue Sunday morning was taken to Nanaimo General Hospital with non life threatening injuries, according to Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Jesse Foreman. He said it appears the two back wheels of the tractor trailer came off and the vehicle slid right across Memorial Avenue, hitting a light pole and knocking it down. Foreman said the trailer did not collide with any other vehicles but the accident held up traffic for hours and lost a load of wood chips.
