CORNWALL ā€“ Lunch time drivers heading through a busy intersection Wednesday had to get around a tractor trailer.

The big rig somehow jackknifed in the middle of Vincent Massey Drive and Power Dam Drive around 12:30 p.m., prompting an arrival from emergency responders.

Cornwall police spokesman Stephanie MacRae told Cornwall Newswatch, how the driver and the scissored truck got into the predicament is still under investigation.

There were no other vehicles involved and the driver was not injured, MacRae said.

The intersection was still open to traffic as cars and trucks made their way around the rig.

A tow truck was also on scene.
