A truck containing liquid explosives went off the road near the intersection of Route 414 and Route 410 Thursday morning, causing a major traffic backlog.

A truck carrying liquid explosives ended up overturned in a ditch at the LaScie turnoff near Baie Verte Thursday morning.

According to members of the Baie Verte Volunteer Fire Department, who were on the scene directing traffic, vehicles were stopped a kilometre in each direction due to concerns for the safety of the public.

Crews handled the contents of the truck, which was overturned in a ditch.

The RCMP said Route 414 and Route 410 would be closed in both directions until further notice, meaning the only road out of Baie Verte is unavailable.

Crews on the scene said no one was injured in the accident.
