Driver from Maryfield, Sask, involved in two-vehicle crash on Hwy 14

At approximately 10:30 am on Saturday, August 10, 2019, an officer with the Morris RCMP was conducting a patrol on Highway 14 when he came across a two-vehicle collision, approximately eight kilometres west of Highway 75 in the RM of Montcalm.

The investigation has determined that a westbound vehicle, being driven by a 24-year-old male from Maryfield, Saskatchewan, crossed over the centre line and collided with an eastbound vehicle, being driven by a 62-year-old male from Ste. Agathe.

The three other occupants were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The 62-year-old male driver was not injured.

Officers believe seatbelts were in use and that alcohol was not a factor in the collision.
