There were two car accidents yesterday that the Estevan Fire and Rescue Department responded to yesterday. 

"We had a call at approximately 12:20 for a motor vehicle collision on Kensington Avenue at the south railway crossing," explained Fire Chief, Dale Feser. "A train had come into contact with a highway transport truck pulling fiberglass pipe."

As a result of the collision, some of the pipes came off the load and fell on top of a northbound pickup truck that was stopped at the tracks.

"Thank goodness there were no injuries. It definitely sounded worse than what it was once we did arrive on scene."

The fire department established a perimeter, did a hazardous assessment analysis. EMS were also on scene and treated and released the people involved. 

"During our assessment, that's when we were alerted to a second motor vehicle collision that was outside the city limits on Viewfield Raod, northwest of Hitcock."

"This particular incident involved a highway transport truck and a smaller SUV."

Crews arrived to find the SUV had suffered substantial damage however, there were no injuries. 

Members of the fire department then were able to enjoy First Responders Night at the Bruins game with no calls to interrupt their evening.
