An accident involving and logging truck and a pick up shut down the highway south of Nelson Thursday morning at 8:19 a.m.

Nelson Fire Department reports “luckily there were no injuries” in the incident that caused significant damage to the pick-up truck and saw the logging truck completely blocking both lanes of Highway 6.
