Foam Lake RCMP
At 4:08 pm this afternoon, Foam Lake RCMP responded to a call of a semi tractor-trailer unit colliding with a train. The accident occurred just off of Hwy #16 approximately 1.5 miles west of Foam Lake, Saskatchewan.
Investigation thus far has revealed that the empty B-train (two trailer semi unit) was southbound on an access road and passed in front of an eastbound CP Rail train. The train hit the semi unit between the two trailers and dragged the vehicle approximately 150-200 yards down the rail line. The accident has caused the train to partially derail and there are approximately 8 cars off the tracks. There are no environmental concerns as a result of the collision and the only apparent spill is a small quantity of potash from one of the boxcars.
The 66 year old driver and lone occupant of the semi unit did not suffer any serious injuries. The driver along with train personnel were examined at the scene by EMS.
Traffic in the area on Hwy #16 is somewhat restricted but flowing in both directions. The access road is blocked.
Charges to the semi driver are pending.
Wadena / Foam Lake RCMP members have left the scene.
RCMP Integrated Organized Crime Unit South
On April 27, 2010, the RCMP Integrated Organized Crime Unit South received a complaint from three investors who felt they had been defrauded after making technology investments. Investigators conducted a thorough investigation, which included interviewing more than 30 individuals and examining thousands of bank and financial documents. These interviews and documents related to over $5 million that was raised from investors in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia between January 25, 2007 and October 30, 2009. No further investments were placed after October 30, 2009 due to a Cease Trade Order issued November 2, 2009 by the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan.
As a result of the investigation, Alena PASTUCH (DOB: 1965-07-25) was arrested earlier today and charged with:
- Fraud over $5000
- Theft over $5000
- Proceeds of Crime Offences
Alena PASTUCH will make her first court appearance on June 5, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in Regina, Saskatchewan.
At approximately 11:30 am on June 3, 2014, Biggar RCMP were dispatched to a call of a work place accident at a residence near the community of Springwater, Saskatchewan (approximately 18 miles southwest of Biggar, Saskatchewan). EMS attended to the scene prior to the RCMP and a 54 year old male was on the ground with what was described as an apparent severe head injury. Perry K McBEE of Biggar, Saskatchewan was taken from the scene via ambulance to meet STARS air ambulance but succumbed to his injuries at the hospital prior to the meet. A coroner attended to the Biggar Hospital and an autopsy was not ordered.
Further investigation into this incident revealed that Perry McBEE was doing contracted roofing work at the residence along with another male. While working on the roof, Perry McBEE fell backwards off of the roof and onto the ground below. RCMP do not consider this death suspicious and the investigation into this workplace accident has been handed over to the Occupational Health and Safety division in the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety for the province of Saskatchewan.
