On Saturday, July 13, Station 1 was called to a three-vehicle collision on the Highway 12 overpass west of Stettler. One person was taken to the Stettler hospital with undetermined injuries.

At about 4:40 p.m., fire crews responded south of Stettler on Highway 56 to a single vehicle on its side in the west ditch along the highway. On arrival, one male occupant required extrication from the vehicle. He had already been removed from the truck. STARS ambulance was requested to attend, but was unable to respond due to weather conditions.

The cause of the crash has not been released. Traffic was halted for several minutes until the vehicle could be removed from the ditch.
