Wind wobble topples trailer

No one was hurt, but south- and northbound traffic in both directions was backed up on the Nanaimo Parkway for about an hour Monday after a travel trailer flipped in the southbound lanes south of the Mostar Road intersection. Nanaimo RCMP attributed the crash to “wind wobble” – fish-tailing caused by air turbulence between the trailer and a transport truck it was passing. No charges are pending against the driver who was driving at the posted speed as he was passing the truck. - Chris Bush photo
