Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

LIT­TLE BRAS D’OR — RCMP re­sponded to an in­ci­dent in which a driver was pinned as his ve­hi­cle caught fire. Cpl. Dal Hutchin­son said the male driver was trans­port­ing a large an­chor near Lit­tle Bras d’Or on Thursday morn­ing around 11 a.m.

He hit the brakes on the cube van as a traf­fic light turned yel­low, caus­ing the heavy load to shift for­ward.

The an­chor trav­elled through the ve­hi­cle’s cab and into the en­gine block, re­sult­ing in it catch­ing fire. Hutchin­son said the male was pinned but could re­move his seat­belt and exit the ve­hi­cle. He was taken to hos­pi­tal with non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries.
