According to West Shore RCMP, no one was injured in the incident.

Steve Chapman, general manager with Chew Excavating Ltd., said the drill rig was being moved when it flipped over due to rough terrain. He added a root cause investigation would be taking place to figure out how to avoid a similar incident in the future.
