Two of the vehicles had to be towed from the scene and minor injuries were reported by occupants of the vehicles. Estevan EMS and the Estevan Fire Rescue Service also responded. The investigation resulted in one of the drivers being charged under the Traffic Safety Act for failing to obey a red light.

A suspicious male was reported to have been parked in a neighborhood for about a week. Members spoke with the individual and it was learned that he was residing in the area. The complainant was updated and no further action was required.
