Visibility likely the cause of two accidents

Yesterday the Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority (BRFA) responded to two motor vehicle collisions (MVC) in the Lakeland area.

On April 5, Station 5 Bonnyville responded to a two-vehicle MVC near 50 Avenue and 62 Street in Bonnyville.

“Both drivers were assessed by EMS but not transported to the hospital,” Dan Heney Regional Fire Chief of the BRFA said. “One vehicle required a tow.”

A short time later, Station 5 Bonnyville responded to a single-vehicle MVC where a vehicle left the road and ended up in a slough near Highway 28 and RR 454.

“The driver was assessed by EMS but not transported and the vehicle required a tow,” Heney said. “Alberta Environment was contacted for a possible environmental follow-up.”

It was snowing at the time, therefore, the weather may have played a role in the two mishaps.

Heney said the “Roads weren’t overly slippery.” However, visibility was likely the cause of the two accidents.
