On January 19, 2022, at approximately 8:20 am, Norway House RCMP received a report of a semi-trailer having rolled onto its side on Provincial Road 373, located near the Ross Island ferry crossing entering the community of Norway House. The truck was reported to be hauling diesel fuel and that the fuel was leaking onto the frozen river.

Within a short period of time, two more trucks hauling diesel fuel had rolled at this location and that one of them was also leaking fuel onto the ice.

Provincial Road 373 has now been closed and the clean-up process has begun.

Norway House RCMP along with the Province of Manitoba continue to investigate.
