  1. Truck Involved in Accident Located: last week, there was a tragic accident in Dawson Creek that involved a semi-truck that then kept driving. Saskatoon police eventually found the vehicle.

  3. Tomslake Evacuation: on Wednesday, residents near Tomslake were ordered to evacuate due to a vehicle incident involving a tanker truck.
