Emer­gency ser­vices re­sponded to a sin­gle ve­hi­cle col­li­sion on the Tran­sCanada High­way near the in­ter­sec­tion of 16th Street SW at about 11 a.m. Thurs­day.

A male driver was east­bound on the ser­vice road by this in­ter­sec­tion, said Const. Dar­ren Holeha of the Medicine Hat Po­lice Ser­vice. The driver then ex­ited the ser­vice road and en­tered the high­way east­bound.

“He ac­cel­er­ated and he lost trac­tion on the wet road, lost con­trol of the ve­hi­cle and then hit the me­dian on the west side,” said Holeha.

The ve­hi­cle ended up on its side. He did not sus­tain any in­juries, said Holeha.

“There are charges pend­ing against the driver un­der the traf­fic safety act,” said Holeha.
