ELMSDALE: Two women were taken to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries following a Feb. 26 crash that shutdown Highway 102 southbound between Milford and Elmsdale for almost nine hours.

Enfield RCMP responded to a 911 call of a single-vehicle rollover involving a red Dodge pickup truck with three people involved on Hwy 102 in Lantz. The pickup truck lost control.

Elmsdale and Lantz fire responded to the call, as did EHS and TIR crews.

“It rolled and came to rest in the ditch,” said Cpl. Jen Clarke in a release. “The male driver was out of the vehicle when police arrived on scene, however there were two female passengers who needed to be extracted from the truck.”

Cpl. Clarke said that both women, one of whom was in the front passenger seat and the other in the back seat of the truck on the passenger side, sustained serious but non life-threatening injuries.

“All three passengers of the vehicle were transported to hospital by ambulance,” she said.

An RCMP Collision Analyst was called to examine the evidence at the scene.

Highway 102 was closed in the southbound lanes between Exits 9 and 8 until approximately 10:30 p.m., when it reopened.

The matter remains under investigation.
