Press releases from RCMP across the province. Unedited and straight from the source.
At approximately 7:45 this morning Glaslyn and Turtleford RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision involving a semi transport truck and trailers that struck two buildings. This occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m. on Highway #4 in the Village of Glaslyn. The semi unit lost control on entering the village and collided with a service station and storage building. The single person in the service station was not injured in this collision. The storage building caught fire and Glaslyn and Turtleford Fire Departments attended the scene. The driver and lone occupant of the semi unit is a 43 year old male from Edmonton, Alberta. He was transported by ambulance to North Battleford Union Hospital due to injuries and is in serious but stable condition. Winter road conditions of fresh snow were present at the time however speed is believed to be the most significant contributing factor to this collision. Collision Reconstructionists from Saskatoon and Lanigan attended the scene and this collision remains under investigation. Highway 4 continues to be closed but is expected to reopen this evening as debris from the collision is removed. Traffic continues to be diverted through the Village of Glaslyn, and the Highway Hotline will be updated with the status of the highway in due course.
The RCMP reminds motorists to use caution on the roadways and to check the Highway Hotline before travelling to keep informed of current road conditions.
