Unity RCMP

At 07:53 hrs on May 2nd the Unity RCMP were dispatched to a collision between a Semi-Truck and a Train on the CN line 4 miles West of the town of Landis, Saskatchewan.   There were no injuries to either the driver of the Semi truck, or to the operators of the train, and EMS was not required.  Wilkie Fire and Rescue responded to the collision and assisted in the clean-up of a ruptured fuel tank on the semi-unit, which spilled a partial tank of diesel fuel.

 

Investigation revealed that the truck was North-bound on Standard Road at the time of the collision and did not stop at the rail-crossing and was struck by a West-bound train on the CN line.   The truck was pushed across the road-way and into the ditch by the train, which stopped as soon as was possible until the  truck could be removed from the side of the train.

 

Rail traffic was suspended until the Semi-truck and grain trailer was pulled back from the edge of the tracks, and the train could move out of the affected rail area.  CN officials examined the track and determined there were no damages to the lines so rail traffic was able to resume.

 

There was no damage to the rail cars; there were no goods spilled from the train, which was composed of cargo box cars, and container units.  At the time of the collision the train was estimated to be travelling at a speed of approximately 45 miles per hour, and the truck was also travelling at a low speed as the driver had just stopped to adjust the tarps on the grain trailer.  At the time of the collision the truck made initial contact with the locomotive of the train.  

 

The truck and trailer were completely removed from the site by 12:00hrs and rail traffic has resumed without any restrictions.

 

A 56-year old male resident of the Landis district was charged with disobeying a rail-way stop signal.

Lumsden RCMP is currently on scene of a single semi tractor-trailer unit that is stuck near Exit A on Highway #11 approximately eight kilometers west of Regina.

 

The semi tractor-trailer unit was hauling a large transformer and as the driver was turning around at Exit A, one of the unit's back wheels went into the ditch and sunk into the soft ground. The unit is currently stuck, blocking the right lane of Highway #11 into Regina. The left lane is currently open at reduced speeds.

 

The unit is upright and there are no injuries to the lone male driver. Motorists can expect delays for several hours as two cranes from Regina must come to remove the unit from the ditch.

 

RCMP advises that if you are traveling in the area, ensure that you slow down to 60 kilometers an hour when passing emergency workers and tow trucks. To bypass the scene, motorists can take the exit ramp and cross Highway #734, taking the off-ramp back to Highway #11, southbound.

At approximately 6:00 am, Lumsden RCMP were advised of a two vehicle collision on Hwy #11 in northbound lane at the north side of the valley.

Investigation thus far has revealed that a Semi Cement Hauler with two trailers (B-Train) was driving slowly up the incline of the hill and a 2013 Ford F350 pickup truck appears to have driven into the rear trailer of the semi tractor / trailer unit.  The pickup truck sustained extensive damage and the lone male occupant of the truck had to be extracted from the vehicle and was taken to hospital in Regina with undetermined injuries.

There were two male occupants in the semi unit who did not sustain any injuries.  Since the accident, the traffic was down to one lane and until the semi unit is offloaded, the traffic in the area will be restricted.  Once this is done, traffic will be back to normal.

The investigation into this matter continues.
