PEMBROKE (Special) A driverless transport truck loaded with 31 tons of sheet steel rolled into the path of the Vancouver-bound Canadian Pacific Canadian here Friday night, causing $9,500 damage.
No one was injured, but the train was delayed about half an hour after it collided with the trailer section of the transport at 7 p.m. and carried it more than 200 feet down the track.
Police said the truck, owned by Tians-Provincial Freight Carriers of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., had been parked on a hill near Pembroke Steel Equipment Company when the parking brake slipped.
David Brown, 21, of Queensville, Ont., was in charge of the truck.
