On Sunday, December 29, 2019, at approximately 5:00 p.m. police were dispatched to the eastbound lanes of the Ring Road near the Winnipeg Street overpass for a report of a single motor vehicle collision.
Early stages of the investigation indicate that the vehicle was eastbound on the Ring Road and the male driver, and lone occupant, lost control of the vehicle and struck the metal support beam on the south side of the Ring Road. EMS transported the driver to the hospital for injuries described as serious, but not life-threatening.
Slippery road conditions appear to be a major contributing factor in the collision. The City Road Maintenance Division has been notified and will attend to sand the roadway.
