Asphalt truck gets stuck boarding B.C. ferry, leads to delays
Sailings out of Horseshoe Bay are experiencing delays after an asphalt truck got stuck on the loading ramp while trying to board a ferry.
The truck got stuck while trying to board the Queen of Surrey, forcing the sailing to Langford to be delayed for over an hour.
A tow truck is en route to try and get the truck removed from the ramp. Passengers already on board the vessel are being forced to wait it out.

Meanwhile, the Queen of Coquitlam has been dispatched for the passengers awaiting the Queen of Surrey’s arrival.
This isn’t the first time a stuck truck has led to delays on B.C. Ferries.
Two years ago, a truck loaded with hay got stuck while trying to board a ferry at Horseshoe Bay during an unusually low tide. Several sailings were cancelled at that time.
