At approximately 7:30 AM this morning, a truck owned and operated by a Nordion service provider was involved in a traffic accident on March Road, in Kanata, while transporting four cleaned and empty transport packages away from the facility. At the time of the accident, the truck was stopped at a traffic light, where it was struck from behind by another vehicle. In keeping with established safety protocols, the package was examined on the scene by a Nordion radiation specialist who confirmed that no adverse effects to the packages or their securement had occurred, and no radiation contamination was detected. Repairs to the truck trailer were completed on scene and it resumed its route by 9:45 AM.
