Ice fog and reduced visibility causing accidents in the Lakeland Region

Ice fog and reduced visibility are causing issues this morning for motorists in the Lakeland Region.

Marwayne Fire and Rescue and County #9-1 were dispatched at 7:41 a.m. this morning to a reported motor vehicle accident (MVA) with entrapment near Township 534 and Range Road 21.

“Crews arrived and worked to remove one patient,” County Fire Chief Kirk Hughes told Lakeland Connect. “There were no serious injuries. Captain Andrew Wood cleared the call at 9:01 a.m. ”

A second call came in shortly afterward for an MVA on Highway #16. Vermilion Fire & Rescue Society attended and provided assistance to the RCMP. Deputy Chief Anton Krys cleared the call at 9:18 a.m.

“Thanks to our volunteers, RCMP, EMS, and our Dispatchers at EC911 for their work on a busy Thursday morning,” County Fire Chief Hughes said. “Ice fog and slippery conditions are still occurring in the region, please drive with care.”
