Emergency Services responds to MVC on Highway 22

Chris Davis

On Thursday, December 27 Pincher Creek Emergency Services responded to a two vehicle collision on Highway 22.  A vehicle was turning off of the highway when it was struck from behind by another vehicle.  Lundbreck Fire and Pincher Creek Rescue responded, including two ambulances due to the details provided by the 911 call, which reported three injuries.  Emergency Services assessed four people at the scene, with two people then transported to Pincher Creek Hospital with undetermined injuries.  Emergency Services then performed traffic control on Highway 22 so tow trucks could clear the debris from the highway.

According to Emergency Services Chief Dave Cox road conditions were clear and dry, with lots of traffic traveling the highway.  Inattention is suspected to be a factor in this collision.

Emergency Services has also been responding to quite a few false alarms over the holiday season.
