One person was killed and two people suffered minor injuries in a head-on collision that happened on Highway 47 four kilometres north of Estevan on January 8.
The driver of a northbound pick-up lost control of his vehicle and drove into the path of a southbound semi. The driver of the pick-up truck, a 33-year-old resident of Medicine Hat, Alberta, was declared dead at the scene. He had been working in the Estevan area.
Two occupants of the semi sustained minor injuries. Both were treated by EMS and released.
Traffic was rerouted around the scene for several hours as Estevan RCMP and an RCMP traffic reconstructionist attended to the scene. An investigation is ongoing but police do not expect charges to be laid.
Road conditions were poor at the time due to the strong winds and blowing snow. Both are believed to have been a factor in the collision.
The accident was one of several that occurred on January 8 in southern Saskatchewan due to road conditions. Travel not recommended advisories were issued for several highways in the southeast due to icy conditions and poor visibility.
