Highway 4 remains closed in both directions after a fuel truck flipped 33 kilometres east of the Ucluelet junction yesterday.
Drive BC says the highway could remain closed until this evening.
Ucluelet volunteer firefighters and Ministry of Environment experts are on scene trying to contain the fuel spill.
The truck driver was not hurt but there’s no word what caused the crash or whether it has caused any significant environmental damage, as the focus is on keeping the jet fuel from entering the Kennedy River.
Westbound traffic is being turned back at Lakeshore Drive, and Drive BC says they will update the information on their website as more information comes available
