    • It was set up on 3rs line this crash was on people’s 2 kms from work site and the lady that was hit was cut off by another car turning and swerved into the city truck had nothing to do with the set up and on that how about you take another route or be patient seeing how there’s snow removal in progress signs everywhere so you can avoid using the one road that is being operated on

      • Josh please use some punctuation to break up that sentence. It was far too difficult to read and decipher.
