Sulphur leaks, traffic disrupted, after semi rolls on Alberta highway

GRASSLAND – A busy northern Alberta highway was left impassable after crews moved in to clean up molten sulphur that leaked from a flipped semi-trailer truck.

The single-vehicle accident happened Monday on Highway 63, east of the community of Grassland.

RCMP said no one was hurt when the truck rolled and ended up in a ditch.

Detours have been set up and officials expect it will be quite some before the area is cleared.

Grassland is about 180 kilometres north of Edmonton.
