Last night at approximately 8:15 p.m., Falcon Lake RCMP responded to a single-vehicle collision on Hwy. 1, five minutes east of Falcon Lake. A semi truck carrying steel had hit a rock face, and the driver became trapped. The driver was extricated and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
There are reports of traffic being rerouted through West Hawk and Falcon Lake via PR 301 and Hwy. 44, in order to avoid the collision.
Forecasters with Environment Canada have issued a weather advisory, as they expect up to 15 cm of blowing snow overnight, which could make driving hazardous.
