Semi in the ditch
On Aug. 29, the Canora/Sturgis RCMP were dispatched to a report of semi in the ditch at the railway tracks south of Canora on Highway 9. Police investigated the incident and learned the driver of the semi drove into the ditch to avoid a collision with a train crossing the highway. Visibility was very poor at the time of the incident due to heavy fog. The highway was closed for a short time and traffic was diverted as crews cleaned up the scene and towed the semi and two trailers out of the ditch. There were no injuries.
Alcohol endangers kids
The Canora/Sturgis RCMP were dispatched on Aug. 29 to a dispute involving two intoxicated individuals at a residence in Canora. Police attended and located young children in the home. As the parents were in no condition to care for the children, a family member was contacted to watch the children. Child and Family Services was also contacted to follow up with the family.
