Two vehicle collision near Burmis sends one person to hospital

Toni Lucas

Approximately 9:00 am on Monday, March 28, Pincher Creek Emergency Services, Crowsnest Pass RCMP, and Lundbreck Fire Hall responded to a two vehicle collision between a tractor trailer and a minivan one kilometer west of the Burmis weigh scales on Highway 3. The driver of the minivan was extricated from the vehicle and transported to Crowsnest Pass Hospital with relatively minor injuries, and the other driver was released on scene. Workers were on scene for approximately one and a half hours. Recent weather included freezing rain and snowy conditions, which may have been contributing factors in this incident.
