Single vehicle collision – superhuman strength
Clearwater RCMP was advised of a single vehicle collision on Highway 5 five km south of Blue River.
The vehicle was reported to be down the ditch about 30 feet.
The vehicle apparently was on its side with the occupants trapped inside until a passerby went down and pushed vehicle back onto its wheels.
The passerby then assisted the occupants out of the vehicle, which was demolished.
The driver was said to be southbound when losing control of the vehicle on a straight stretch, going off road right.
The driver had a minor stomach injury, and the passenger was unhurt.
Thanks to the passerby from Saskatchewan!
