Minor collision south of Ponoka slows southbound traffic

It’s believed there were relatively minor injuries from the incident

A single vehicle collision near Ponoka slowed the southbound lanes of Highway 2.

Emergency crews were called to the QEII highway just after 8 p.m. Tuesday night. It appears a red Toyota crossover was southbound when it collided with a guardrail before ending up in the slow lane.

The car’s airbags, including the side and front airbags deployed and the right front wheel was damaged. Also damaged was the driver’s front side wheel.

It is not known the cause of the collision, however, the injuries are believed to be minor.

Ponoka RCMP, EMS and the Ponoka County East District Fire Department were called to the scene to assist.

More to come…
