At approximately 8:00 pm, on August 8th, the Estevan Fire Rescue was called to Highway 39 East just outside the Roche Percy Valley to a rollover that involved a semi. Fire Rescue sent out their Tanker Truck and Rescue truck as well as their Hazmat truck because early indications didn't give any idea whether it was hauling vigorous commodities.
Fire Cheif Dale Feser says, "once crews arrived on the scene, they did find that the vehicle was on the side in the north ditch, a quick assessment revealed there was no placard on the vehicle and they were not carrying any dangerous goods."
Feser added that there were a few leaks from the vehicle and they kept the semi isolated to keep the situation under control. Both occupants of the semi were found alert and had some injuries. The trailer of the semi was fully loaded so for the tow company to recover the semi they had to offload the product first. The cause is still under investigation by the RCMP. The traffic was not stopped although there were officers there to keep traffic flowing. The truck has now been cleared, and the highway is now open. The RCMP thanks everyone for their patience and caution around the area.
