A collision near the downtown sector had the attention of emergency services over the lunch hour on Thursday.

"There was a three vehicle accident around noon. One vehicle suffered significant damage and needed to be towed from the scene. The second had quite a bit of damage, it won't be drivable, but it was able to be moved from the scene," shared Sergeant Evan Handley with the Estevan Police Service.

"One person was transported to the hospital via ambulance with non life threatening injuries. At this time we're still investigating what the main cause of the accident was, so no one has been charged at this point in time."

He added that, while it's too early to know whether roads played a major part in the incident, motorists should remember to drive according to the slick conditions.
