At about 11 a.m. Sunday, Stettler Regional Fire Rescue was called to a single-vehicle rollover about 15 miles north of Stettler on Highway 56.

The vehicle had entered the ditch and struck an approach, causing it to roll and land on its roof.

The lone occupant of the vehicle escaped with non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by ground ambulance to Stettler Hospital.

The highway was reduced to a single lane of traffi c while the scene was cleared.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

Last Thursday afternoon, Stettler Regional Fire Rescue responded to a two-vehicle collision in Erskine. A semi-truck had rear-ended an SUV, causing the SUV to enter the north ditch at about 3:40 p.m.

The highway was kept open while crews were on the scene, and occupants of both vehicles sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

The investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing.
