Minor collision at Ponoka Yield intersection

It’s believed there were minor injuries in a collision where a driver had to be extricated

A collision in Ponoka on Thursday afternoon resulted in one driver having to be extricated although it’s believed that injuries were minor.

At about 2 p.m. emergency crews were called to the intersection of 51 Street and 55 Avenue after a Jeep collided with a Chevy SUV. The driver of the SUV’s side panel was somewhat crushed where the Jeep had collided with it.

It appears the Jeep was westbound on 55 Avenue and was at a Yield sign. It then proceeded into the intersection and collided with the SUV, which is believed to have been southbound on 51 Street.

The intersection has Yield signs on the east and west side of 51 Street while 55 Avenue is a through street.

Members of the Ponoka County East District Fire Department, EMS and Ponoka RCMP attended the scene. It’s unknown at this time if there were any charges stemming from the incident.
