The Estevan RCMP has released the following statement regarding the accident that claimed the life of one of their members. 

"Thank you from Estevan Detachment and CTSS"

"The Estevan RCMP Combined Traffic Services Section (CTSS) and Estevan RCMP Detachment would like to thank the public for all their support in regards to the recent incident involving two off-duty RCMP members."

"Tragically, Cst. Donaldson lost his life and the other member in the vehicle suffered serious injury as a result of the motor vehicle accident east of Lampman. The support that the RCMP has received from Emergency Services Partner Agencies (Fire, EMS, Police), the general public, the community councils and complete strangers has been heart-warming and well-received."

"Thoughts of condolence, flowers, food and kind words have been arriving since the incident on May 15, 2018 and continue to be received daily. The RCMP would like the public to know how much we appreciate your thoughts and kind actions. Tragedies like this bring us all together and remind us at the RCMP of what an honour it is to work with the public to keep our communities safe. Thank you to all and take care."
