6 hurt in accident involving RCMP SUV
Six people were injured early Wednesday morning when an RCMP vehicle went off the road near Raymore, Sask. and ended up in the ditch.
Among those hurt were two women, ages 22 and 18, and two toddlers, ages two years and 11 months.
No one was seriously injured, the RCMP said. All six were taken to hospital in Wynyard where they were treated and released.
Police said the accident happened after two members of the Punnichy RCMP detachment responded to a domestic complaint at a home on the Kawacatoose First Nation at around 2:40 a.m. CST.
Later, officers were taking four people from the home to a hotel in Raymore when the accident happened.
While on a grid road en route to Raymore, the driver of the RCMP sport utility vehicle lost control and the vehicle ended up in the ditch.
The accident remains under investigation by the Punnichy RCMP with assistance from a traffic reconstructionist out of Yorkton, the RCMP said.
