On Friday, July 11, 2014 at approximately 10:00 p.m., an F-350 pickup truck with a 39-year-old male driver and a ten-year-old male passenger from Imperial, Saskatchewan, was traveling across a rural grid road approximately four kilometers south of Highway #15 in the R.M. of Wood Creek. Approximately 200 meters of the rural road was underwater. The water covering the rural road is from a slough near the roadway that overflowed due to recent flooding in the area.
The truck veered off the east side of the road and began to submerge into the deeper water. The driver ensured that the 10-year-old passenger, his son, got out first and swam to safety. The driver also exited the vehicle, but was unable to reach safety.
Saskatoon RCMP Police Dog Services, Watrous EMS and STARS attended the scene and searched the area around the body of water by foot. Saskatoon Traffic Services utilized the RCMP unmanned aerial vehicle FLIR video system (detects hot and cold) in an attempt to locate heat signatures along the shoreline in the hopes that the male may have made it to shore. These searches were negative.
With the assistance of the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team, the body of the deceased male driver and the truck was located and removed from the water. An autopsy has been ordered by the office of the Chief Coroner to determine the exact cause of death.
The name of the deceased will not be released and RCMP, as well as the Office of the Chief Coroner, continue to investigate.
The RCMP at the Craven Country Jamboree (both within the grounds themselves and RCMP Traffic Services on the public roadways) are finishing up their operations by directing traffic flow and monitoring the departure of attendees from the event grounds.
Overall in 2014, for the number of attendees at Craven this year, RCMP only dealt with a small percentage of them. The RCMP credits the attendees for their cooperation with police from the onset of the Jamboree through to its completion.
The Craven Country Jamboree Management Team did a great job in organizing the camping area, allowing police to move throughout the grounds unobstructed. Traffic flow, as in past years, continued to be a concern, however police want to thank motorists for their patience on the highways.
There were 96 arrests made since the beginning of the festival and RCMP Traffic Services report 307 tickets issued.
Update – Fireworks Injury – Lumsden RCMP continues the investigation into the injury sustained from the discharge of a firework projectile on Saturday, July 12, 2014. The female was struck in the face with the heated projectile from close range and remains in hospital. An adult male from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan has been arrested and charged with Criminal Negligence Causing Bodily Harm. He will appear in Regina Provincial Court on September 9, 2014.
