Details of Incident / Close Call: 

A loaded logging truck rolled over the bank at 11.5km on the Copper Forest Service Road. The truck spun out on a hill @ 11.5km and the trailer slid towards the downhill side (outside of road) and tipped over the bank, causing the truck to roll with it.

The road at the time was in a winter driving condition. The driver of the truck had removed the tire chains a few kilometers up the Copper FSR and did not have them on at the time of the roll over.

The driver of the truck was not injured in the incident.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

Driver should have put tire chains back on before starting to drive up the hill.
