Sask police busy with accidents from late-season snowstorm, many roads still closed
Parts of Saskatchewan are expected to receive 10 to 40 centimetres of snowfall from Wednesday morning until Friday, resulting in difficult road conditions.
In a press release on Wednesday evening, the RCMP advised against travel in southeast Saskatchewan due to multiple collisions on Highway 1 east of Regina.
“Road conditions east of Regina to Wolseley are deteriorating rapidly,” RCMP said.
“Officers are currently on scene by Wolseley where two west-bound semis have jackknifed.”
According to the RCMP, traffic in the westbound lanes of Highway 1 is currently at a standstill and will remain delayed until the scene is cleared due to several collisions on the highway east of Regina.
“This could take several hours,” RCMP explained.
“Officers are reporting delays with response times and tow truck availability due to the dangerous conditions.”
The Saskatchewan RCMP advises drivers to check the weather forecast for road conditions and possible closed roads on the Highway Hotline.
