Heavy wind and snow proved a challenge for motorists on the Friday morning commute.
Emergency crews were called to several rollovers and vehicles in the ditch on the QE2 near Ponoka. Due to wintry road conditions travel was slow going with sanders working to minimize the icy road conditions.
At about 7 a.m. the Ponoka County East District Fire Department was called to the scene of a semi rollover on the QE2 just north of the Highway 53 exit. It appears the semi was southbound when it went into the median and rolled. It’s not know the severity of the injuries for the driver.
Just south of that scene a semi tractor hauling a flat deck trailer lost control and was in the west side ditch with the vehicle perpendicular to the highway.
