In a press release, RCMP say dash cam footage they obtained showed the tractor-trailer heading east, obeying the speed limit while the westbound dump truck is seen approaching the tractor-trailer and suddenly turning left in front of it to enter a construction site.

RCMP issued the driver of the dump truck a violation ticket for driving without insurance and crossing a double solid line.

Police remind drivers that if you are operating a vehicle that you do not own or do not regularly drive, you are still responsible for ensuring the vehicle has active insurance.
