The driver, and lone occupant, of the vehicle was not injured.
Motorists are recommended to avoid this area while crews work to clean up the highway.
Flames sign Kadri to 7-year, $49-million deal, trade Monahan to Canadiens
CALGARY — The Calgary Flames have signed forward Nazem Kadri to a seven-year, US$49-million deal.
The 32-year-old Kadri was one of the biggest names available in free agency after an all-star season with Colorado that ended with the Avalanche winning the Stanley Cup.
Kadri had 28 goals and 59 assists in 71 games for the Avalanche in 2021-22.
He added 15 points in 16 playoff games, including the overtime winner in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final against Tampa Bay.
That was his return to action after being injured in Game 3 of the Western Conference final after being hit from behind by Edmonton forward Evander Kane.
The Flames also sent forward Sean Monahan and a conditional 2025 first-round pick to the Montreal Canadiens for future considerations in a move to create salary cap space for Kadri’s contract.
