Trucking News

There’s a parking pickle.

The driver of a truck rented by Canada Post for the Christmas rush got the vehicle wedged under a parkade ramp at the St. Laurent Shopping Centre Thursday morning.

Witness Awaleh Ismael was driving his minivan behind the truck when he heard a sudden, loud boom as the truck hit the concrete ramp and got wedged between it and a support column.

A rental truck being used by Canada Post managed to get stuck under a parking lot ramp at the St Laurent Shopping Centre.

There it stuck with both passenger-side wheels dangling off the ground.

The driver was able to get out safely, Ismael said.

Canada Post confirmed that one of its employees was involved in the stuck truck mishap.

“As we’re in our busy time and are expecting a record-breaking holiday season, we have invested in our transportation and fleet which includes renting vehicles to help with delivery,” a spokeswoman said.

Ottawa police confirmed that they were called to the mall at 9:48 a.m. and filed a report on the collision.

No charges will be laid.
