Boyle, Alberta – On December 12 2017 at approximately 11:30 a.m., Boyle RCMP with assistance from Highway 63 Rescue responded to a collision involving one vehicle on Highway 63 eighty kilometres north of Wandering River, Alberta. An SUV was travelling southbound when the vehicle lost control, struck the shoulder and proceeded to flip twice fortunately landing upright on its tires.
The lone occupant of the vehicle was treated and released on scene by EMS with no injuries. RCMP conducted an investigation and determined the slick road conditions were the primary cause of the collision.
Boyle RCMP would encourage motorists during the winter driving months to prepare for various road conditions by allowing extra time while travelling, driving with caution when the roads are icy or wet and leaving a safe travelling distance between vehicles.
“Take precautions while driving on Alberta roadways this upcoming Christmas Season”, says Cst. Andrew Deme of the Boyle RCMP. “Leaving an extra few minutes early will allow motorists to prepare for unexpected weather conditions, and to arrive safely to enjoy the Christmas Holidays with friends, family, and loved ones.”
