On Monday, Stettler Fire and Rescue responded to a motor vehicle collision at about 2:40 p.m.

Fire crews were called west of Stettler and south of Highway 12. A pickup truck had rear-ended a three-ton truck that had slowed down on the highway, causing considerable amounts of damage to both vehicles.

The force of the crash caused the three-ton truck to end up in the ditch, and begin leaking diesel fuel and oil. Traffic was slowed to one lane while crews worked to clean the roadway.

Ledcor later took over traffic control and a Vac truck was called in to clean up the spilled fuels.

Both drivers of the vehicles were taken by ground ambulance to the Stettler hospital with undetermined injuries.

Lightning strikes tree

Last Wednesday, Stettler Fire and Rescue responded to a lightning strike.

At 8:08 p.m., a call to 911 reported that lightning had struck a tree along 51 Avenue in Stettler.

When fire crews arrived on the scene, the tree wasn’t on fire and no smoke was showing. There was, however, a large hole down the centre of the tree trunk.

No property was damaged and no injuries were reported in connection with the rare weather blast.
