Luckily there were no injuries after a cultivator jackknifed on Wednesday on Highway 2 north of Ponoka.

The incident occurred in the northbound lanes of Highway 2 at 4 p.m. north of Ponoka nearby Secondary Highway 616. Officers say the frame broke causing the cultivator spikes to dig into the pavement, which flipped the cultivator.
