Yesterday Hanna RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision on Highway 36 North.
The two vehicles collided because of what was assumed to be icy conditions.
"The collision was between an SUV and white pick-up truck," explained Hanna RCMP Constable, Braden Marlow. "We had six males in the truck. Minor injuries to two of the males who were transported to Hanna hospital and later released in good condition. The other four males were fine."
The SUV that collided with the pick-up was transporting a family. The family escaped the collision unharmed.
"The SUV was in front. The pick-up truck tried to pass going into the passing lane. When they went to pass, their vehicle lost traction on the ice and the back end of the vehicle hit the front end of the SUV. This caused both vehicles to go into the westbound ditch."
The SUV sustained damage to the front-left corner and the pick-up truck proceeded to drive through a farmers field before flipping over on its roof. Marlow says that this particular stretch of road is fairly safe and it's irregular for collisions to happen there.
"I thought when I heard the call and heard it was a rollover, I was very concerned at first; knowing about the road conditions," Cst. Marlow concluded. "Luckily, nothing was wrong and the kids and family all escaped with only two people having minor injuries."
