Part of Highway 7 in Grand Bay Westfield, N.B., closed after a head-on collision between a tractor trailer and a car on Thursday.

A detour was in place between exit 80 and exit 71, according to Troy Gautreau, fire chief of the Grand Bay-Westfield Fire-Rescue Department.

The fire department got a call about the collision around 6 a.m.

One person was in the truck, and multiple people were in the car, but Gautreau says no one was injured.

The highway reopened in the afternoon on Thursday.

Gautreau says removing the tractor trailer, which went through a guard rail and over a steep embankment, was a “lengthy process.”

Gautreau adds both vehicles suffered extensive damage and are “probably write-offs.”
