Estevan fire crews responded to semi rollover on the weekend.

ESTEVAN - Estevan fire crews responded to a semi-truck rollover on Canada Day.

The call for service came in at about 7 p.m. on July 1. Firefighters rushed to a vehicle incident that occurred on the north side of the Highway 39 bypass. A semi rolled in the ditch.

EMS was already on scene. Deputy Fire Chief Rick Davies said that upon their arrival, the lone occupant has made it out of the vehicle. EMS treated him and took him to the hospital, but Davies said it seemed that the driver had minor injuries.

Fire crews provided traffic control and assessed the vehicle for any fluid leaks. Once Estevan RCMP arrived, the scene was turned over to them.

According to the initial report, driver error is believed to have resulted in him entering the ditch. He couldn't recover and rolled. Yet, that is to be further investigated, and the RCMP is working on the case.
