This past Saturday, Stettler Regional Fire Rescue responded to a two-vehicle collision west of Stettler at the Highway 12 and Highway 835 intersection.

Firefighters responded at 5:20 p.m. to the car-versus-pickup incident and diverted traffic for a number of hours until the scene was cleared.

It wasn’t immediately known the extent of injuries that the occupants of either vehicle sustained, and the investigation into the cause is ongoing.

On the last Sunday in July, Stettler Regional Fire Rescue and Big Valley Fire Rescue responded to a single-vehicle crash in the ditch south of Big Valley.

At about noon, an SUV towing a trailer had lost control on Highway 56 and entered the west ditch. While the SUV never rolled, the trailer it was towing did.

One occupant of the vehicle was transported by ground ambulance to the Stettler hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Traffic was down to one lane for a short time while crews worked to clear the scene.
