Heavy drifting caused two accidents

A section of the Robert E. Howlett highway has been closed by the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary after two pickups went off the road in an area of heavy drifting.

The closed section is between Ruby Line and Doyle's Road. There were no injuries in the incidents. The RNC are waiting for provincial plows to clear and salt the area before it is re-opened.

The closure is expected to last about one hour.
