Highway 47 is blocked just south of Benson following a crash betweeen a semi-trailer and a cube van this afternoon.
Constable Chad Mehl of the Estevan RCMP detachment says it happened shortly after 3 o'clock. "It appeared that the north-bound cube van appears to have lost control due to slick road conditions, and in the process, collided into the semi. And in the process, the semi, trying to avoid a collision with the cube van, ended up getting stuck in the ditch, and blocking both northbound and southbound lanes of travel." Mehl told Discover Weyburn.
Nobody was hurt. "Alcohol was not a factor" added Mehl. "We're currently investigating all the contributing factors into the collision, including if speed was a factor, and how much of road conditions was a factor as well."
The highway is expected to be clear by shortly after 6:00 PM.
