RCMP Issued Travel Warning As They Dealt With Multiple Collisions

 
 
Southern Alberta: RCMP pleaded for drivers to save themselves some grief and stay off the roads early Thursday.

  At first, it was just to the west of the city out to the Crowsnest Pass but, the Lethbridge RCMP also put out the warning. Blowing snow created severe driving conditions -- travel was NOT recommended. Various Police departments and Emergency Units dealt with multiple highway collisions.

   Crowsnset Pass RCMP dealt with two Semi trailer units blown off of Highway-22, a road that was in particularly bad condition.  Pincher Creek RCMP dealt with three Semi units in the ditch.  Fort Macleod officers also called out to collisions including one near Granum. 

  Between Coalhurst and Coaldale on Highway-3 during the morning traffic run, Lethbridge detachment dealt with two-injury collisions, two-non injury collisions and 14-vehicles in the ditch.  They stopped counting how many vehicles had to simply be pulled out of snow banks.

  Inside the city, things are no better as Regional Police were kept busy jumping from one collision to another.  While visibility improved to the east after the noon hour, the wind polished the road to a high-gloss and created severe ice patches.

 The wind is expected to diminish slightly over night but the wind warning continues for the area from the B-C border to Fort MacLeod and all areas south to the U-S border.
