4 in hospital after vehicle lands in construction pit
Police believe the driver ignored construction signs and barriers in the area
Police say disregarding road signs around a construction site led to a driver losing control and ending up in an excavated pit in Saskatoon Saturday evening.
The four people in the vehicle were taken to hospital with what police believe are non-life-threatening injuries.
The car was headed north on Spadina Crescent near Saskatoon's water treatment plant at around 9:30 p.m. CST. Officers believe the vehicle lost control, and ended up in the pit, rupturing a water main in the process.
Saskatoon Police believe alcohol and speeding are factors in the crash. They believe the driver disobeyed the traffic signs and barriers near the construction site.
