To conclude what turned out to be a busy week for Estevan Fire Rescue, crews were called to a Friday morning incident outside of town.

"Approximately at 8:30 AM we were toned out to respond to a motor vehicle collision that was two kilometers south of the Highway 18-35 junction, which is out by Oungre. Upon arrival at the scene, crews did discover one vehicle that was involved in the collision. The driver was safely out of the vehicle, so extrication aid was not required. Medical aid was on scene, and EMS took over patient care. RCMP services arrived on scene and continued further investigation into the incident," shared Fire Chief Dale Feser.

"The Estevan Fire Rescue team provided assistance EMS, as well as isolating the vehicle, and then we returned home to the station."

While the root cause of the accident was not immediately known by the Chief, he believed that road conditions were almost certainly a contributing factor.

"Just want to make sure we're reminding our motorists to be paying attention to the road conditions and driving accordingly. Of course, you get the warm weather which starts to thaw a little bit then glazes over the roads. The trouble times are typically going to be in the morning when the sun starts to come up and of course in the sunsets."
