The incident occurred on Highway 103 between exits 6 and 7

Highway 103 between exits 6 and 7 has reopened in both directions after a transport truck carrying thousands of pounds of lobster and haddock slid off the road and into a ditch early this morning.

The single-vehicle crash happened near Exit 6 to Hubbards around 1 a.m., with some of the truck's cargo spilling out. The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital for assessment.

The Department of Transportation was on the scene to clean up the debris and crews loaded the cargo onto another truck. A detour was in place via Route 3.

The truck was carrying between 25,000 and 30,000 pounds of lobster and haddock and was heading to the Fishermen's Market location on the Bedford Highway, said Bill Langdon, who was at the scene and works for the company.

Langdon said the lobster will be inspected at the Bedford store but the loss could be in the $100,000 range.

RCMP said the investigation continues but no charges are expected.
