Members of the Estevan Police Service have had a variety of incidents to respond to in the past few days. 

Among them was a collision at the intersection of 6th Street and 13th Avenue on Friday.

"A ten year old girl was hit while riding her bike. She was injured and transported to the hospital," related Sergeant Evan Handley, adding that there have been no further updates to her condition.

The incident is still under investigation, and so no charges have been laid as of yet.

Police also noted that people were strolling back and forth across the center of railroad tracks in the middle of town.

"It's not safe at all. We think that we can see or hear the train coming from a long ways away, but there's lots of vehicles that do travel on the train tracks, CP and CN rail vehicles are moving. Those tracks do move, and if you were to get caught on them, very serious injuries could occur," said Handley.

Signs are located every 20-30 feet along the rails, reminding pedestrians to not cross at locations other than the crossing, and the fine for doing so amounts up to $250.

Other items dealt with by police recently include the arrest of a 24 year old male for possessing under 30 grams of marijuana. He was released for a court date in July. In addition, a theft at the ECS and a shoplifting incident at a convenience store, as well as finding a missing 15 year old female were all undertaken.
