Orange Zone crash prompts charge against Manitoba trucker
A truck driver from Manitoba has been charged under Saskatchewan's highway traffic laws on speed limits in construction areas, or Orange Zones.
According to RCMP, on Oct. 12 a tractor-trailer crashed into the back of a pick up truck, which had slowed for a construction area.
There were no injuries in the crash, although police noted the pick up truck was pushed some 400 meters along the highway before finally coming to a stop.
The crash was reported around 4 p.m. CST on Highway 16, at the intersection that leads to Dalmeny, Sask., about 20 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon.
According to RCMP, the intersection in the Oct. 12 crash has been the site of extensive construction activity and is currently a 60 km/h zone.
