Vehicle leaves roadway, heads down steep embankment

Three people walked away uninjured from a single-vehicle accident this morning after a high-velocity impact.

At 10:51 a.m., on November 18, a single vehicle left the road and headed down a steep embankment striking a series of trees which sent Marwayne Fire, RCMP, EMS, County Peace Officers, and County #9-1 out towards Highway #641.

“First arriving units found a vehicle wedged between some trees, but all occupants out of the car,” County of Vermilion River Fire Chief Kirk Hughes told Lakeland Connect. “EMS assessed the multiple patients and transported three to hospital as a precaution.”

Chief Ron Miske cleared the scene at 12:01 p.m.

“Thankfully no one was seriously injured,” Fire Chief Hughes said.

The scene was then handed over to the RCMP who were investigating and waiting for a tow truck.

“Some roadways remain snow-covered and slippery,” Fire Chief Hughes said. Road crews, graders, and plows are working quickly to clear the roads. Please drive according. Thanks to our volunteers, EC911 Dispatcher and our Protective Services Clerk for all the behind-the-scenes work that went into this call.”
