Another collision has closed Highway 3 near Princeton.

This incident occurred about 7 km east of Princeton just before 9 a.m. Monday.

On Friday, the highway was closed for hours due to a fiery truck crash. The road had just been re-opened for essential travel only, and only hours later it shut down due to multiple vehicle incidents.

Three people died in the crash after two tractor-trailers collided and caught fire. All of the occupants of those trucks were killed.
