The freezing rain, sleet and snow caused a bit of increasing havoc Wednesday for motorists and pedestrians.
“Most people are aware of their surroundings, but on the No. 1 (Trans-Canada highway) there (were) increased responses in the last couple hours (late Wednesday afternoon),” said Kyle Sereda, CEO of Moose Jaw and District EMS on Wednesday. “I’m not sure how widespread it (was).“
He said the local EMS responded to one accident west of Moose Jaw and one east of the city where members were still on the scene as of 4 p.m. Some vehicles were reported in ditches, but he said there were no fatalities as of late afternoon Wednesday.
Moose Jaw EMS also responded to some calls around Chamberlain and Caron and east toward Regina. He said there hadn’t been any serious pedestrian injuries from slipping. None of those calls were out of the ordinary in that type of weather.
