Last week... Off to Rice Lake and Eau Claire, Wisconsin via Sault Saint Marie. Highway 17 was closed down completely between Pembroke and Petawawa, On. due to a multi car accident. I caught this at 20h30. Stayed at the Big Rig Truck Stop
"Police said the accident occurred when a westbound Cadillac SUV and an
eastbound Chevrolet Suburban collided about five kilometres west of
Cobden. Two other eastbound vehicles became indirectly involved in the
accident as a result of this initial crash." Quote: North Bay Nugget, May 16th
It finally reopened the next morning at around 08h00. That didn't delay me much as I had lots of buffer time. The balance of the trip was nice and uneventful. Light traffic, nice roads.
