Truck topples into Princes Street Canal


The driver of a heavy-duty truck was extremely lucky to emerge unscathed after his vehicle toppled into the Princes Street Canal on Sunday afternoon, breaking a pipeline and leaving scores without water.

According to residents, the driver swerved to avoid an oncoming car and ended up in the trench near 17-17 Princes Street around 12:00hrs, partly as a result of the degraded road shoulder.

They say the road shoulder was almost non-existent after desilting and other drainage works were done in the area.

The truck was pulled from the trench later that afternoon.
