Toni Lucas

Pincher Creek Emergency Services (PCES) responded to two separate vehicle rollover incidents on Monday, October 26.  First they responded to a gravel truck rollover on Highway 507 approximately 3 kilometers east of Pincher Creek at 10:46 am.  The only occupant of the vehicle was transported to hospital with undetermined injuries. According to Deputy Fire Chief Pat Neumann the vehicle was carrying old construction material and the debris has been cleared away.  PCES responded with Rescue, Engine 15, and an ambulance.

Later the same day at approximately 6:48 pm PCES and Lundbreck Fire Hall responded to an SUV  rollover. The vehicle landed in the east ditch 15 kilometres north of Highway 3 on Highway 22.  Neumann said wildlife was a probably a contributing factor in this rollover.  All three occupants of the vehicle were transported to Crowsnest Pass Hospital with undetermined injuries.
