On December 22. 2020, at about 1620 hours, an SUV was travelling eastbound on the Trans Canada Highway near Box Springs on poor road conditions. The vehicle lost control, skidded sideways through the barricade and rolled into the centre ditch, with total damage estimated at $20,000.
A lone male driver was trapped in the vehicle. MHFD attended and completed an extrication, and the male was transported by EMS to MHRH for further assessment.
The MHPS would like to remind the public that road conditions can change drastically in a short period and to please use extra caution, even when conditions appear favourable.
MHPS would also like to remind the motoring public to please slow down when passing emergency crews at collision scenes, as secondary collisions were narrowly avoided in this instance.
