RCMP are still looking for answers as to how a driver of a pickup truck maged to hit a tow truck with its ramp down and warning lights on, sending the operator to hospital with serious injuries.
At 7:25 last night, RCMP responded to a collision involving two vehicles on Township Road 494 (12 street) between Range Road 12 and 14 just out side of Lloydminster.
Police say the east-bound pick up truck struck the parked tow truck’s ramp, sending the truck into the air. The truck then hit the cab of the tow truck. The tow truck had been responding to a service call with its ramp down and emergency lights activated.
The Tow Truck operator was sent to Lloydminster Hospital and then air lifted to Edmonton with serious injuries. The driver of the pick-up truck sustained minor injuries and was treated on scene.
RCMP continue the investigation into the circumstances of the collision. Although early, alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors.
