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.
