Deer Lake Police are suggesting a detour as visibility along the Trans-Canada Highway at the lake front is compromised due to severe weather that has already caused an accident.

The driver was uninjured in what the police are calling a single-vehicle collision which took place at 8 a.m. Monday morning. They were asking drivers to enter Deer Lake using the Squires Road entrance and then exit further up the highway because high winds were blowing snow off the frozen lake, causing extreme whiteout conditions.
