Dhillon said a stop work order has been issued on the equipment and the incident is being investigated.

The RCMP reported that no other vehicles were involved, and the two workers inside the vehicle were declared dead at the scene.

Dhillon said the contractor on the project is Ledcor Construction and the two deceased worked for Lafarge, a subcontractor specializing in cement, concrete and aggregates.
