Road conditions led to accidents


The Estevan RCMP was dispatched to a pair of accidents on April 28 that were the result of poor road conditions in the region.

The first was a single-vehicle rollover near the weigh scales on Highway 39 west of the city. A 29-year-old male motorist was in a southeast-bound vehicle, when he lost control and rolled into the south ditch. The driver did not sustain any injuries.  

A short time later, the RCMP, Estevan Fire and Rescue Services and Lampman EMS, responded to a two-vehicle, head-on collision on Highway 47, near the junction with Highway 361.

A white 2007 Ford F150, being driven northbound by a 53-year-old male, was slowing down to turn onto Highway 361, when a southbound 2013 Chevrolet Traverse, being driven by a 35-year-old female, lost control and crossed the centre line of the highway, resulting in the collision. 

Neither occupant suffered significant injuries, but the 35-year-old female was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure. Highway 47 was reduced to one lane for two hours while the collision was being investigated. 

The investigation is ongoing.

The southeast region received a few centimetres of snow on April 27 and 28, and that led to treacherous highway conditions in many areas.
