On Saturday afternoon the Williams Lake RCMP were dispatched to a complaint a logging truck had lost its trailers on Highway 20 at South Lakeside Drive.

"Officers attended and found a tractor trailer parked in the outside lane of the highway," said Insp. Warren Brown. "The logging truck trailers had detached from the power unit and were blocking the lane of traffic."

Brown said the trailers had detached during motion.

A tow truck was used to lift the trailers and re-attach them to the truck.

The damage is estimated at $700 to 800 because two metal supports were bent.

Police said no other vehicles were involved in the incident and there were no injuries.
