Emer­gency crews re­spond to semi trailer roll over

The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

Emer­gency crews spent a num­ber of hours at the scene of a semi-trailer roll over on Tues­day on High­way #4 at the top of the South hill lead­ing into Saskatchew­an Land­ing.

Swift Cur­rent Fire Depart­ment crews were among those re­spond­ing to the roll over of a pup trailer unit filled with An­hy­drous Am­mo­nia. While no ma­te­rial was spilled, Fire Depart­ment per­son­nel re­mained at the scene while wait­ing for the truck to be uprighted and taken off the high­way.

The in­ci­dent oc­cured at ap­prox­i­mately 9 a.m., and crews had blocked the high­way for a one hour pe­riod. As of 11:30 a.m., only one lane of the high­way was open, with traf­fic be­ing di­rected through the area.

Fire Depart­ment per­son­nel re­turned to the scene later Tues­day af­ter­noon as work­ers be­gin the process of trans­fer­ring An­hy­drous Am­mo­nia to an­other truck.

The cause of the ac­ci­dent is un­known at this time. There were no re­ported in­juries.
