Truck Incident In Petawawa "Could've Been Worse": OPP


As the OPP crack down on unsafe trucks this week, there was a close call with a transport that was pulled over in Petawawa.

Police say some metal poles on the truck shifted "dramatically" as the driver was slowing down at an intersection along Highway 17.

Police say it could've been much worse in the case of a collision, or an urgent need to stop.  

They've charged the driver with having an insecure load.
