High winds and blowing snow created treacherous driving conditions in southeast Saskatchewan during the weekend.
Saskatchewan RCMP officers issued a travel advisory on Saturday night for an area of the province that stretched from Fort Qu'Appelle to Carnduff. Officers responded to multiple vehicle collisions, and emergency personnel found it difficult to respond to the accident scenes due to the weather and the road conditions.
Several motorists were stuck along highways, and were waiting for assistance, creating another travel hazard for motorists who braved the conditions.
Then on Sunday morning, members of the Estevan RCMP and South East Traffic Services were dispatched to a collision on Highway 39 near the weigh scales northwest of Estevan. The accident involved a semi truck and a vehicle.
One of the motorists suffered undetermined injuries.
The portion of Highway 39 where the accident occurred was briefly shut down.
Police officers from several detachments in the southeast had to respond to several other accidents on Sunday.
Travel not recommended advisories were issued for southeast highways on Saturday night and Sunday morning, and were lifted by Sunday afternoon.
