Emergency crews attend two vehicle collision west of Ponoka

There were minor injuries from the incident, however, a dog died as a result.

A collision between a pickup and a sedan ended in minor injuries to the drivers, however, a dog died as a result.

Emergency crews were called to the scene of the collision Thursday morning at about 8 a.m. just west of Ponoka on Highway 53. It appears a westbound sedan was turning south at Range Road 260 when a Dodge pickup rear-ended the sedan causing it to end up in the southeast ditch.

The dog was in the sedan.

Members of the Ponoka County East District Fire Department had to pry the driver’s door open to help the woman driver out of the sedan but it is believed she was able to walk to the ambulance and have emergency crews check on her.

The rear end of the sedan took most of the damage while the pickup’s front end received some damage.

Ponoka News will update once more information becomes available.
