There was a three-vehicle collision at the intersection of Highway 42 and Highway 2A in Penhold on Friday.
Just after 4 p.m., Penhold Fire was called to the scene, where there was “moderate to heavy damage” blocking the northbound lane of Highway 2A and the eastbound lane of Highway 42, said Lt. Jamie Southwell.
“Fortunately there were no injuries and we immediately set up traffic management,” said Southwell.
Three fire units along with the RCMP and EMS responded to the collision.
Penhold Fire Chief Jim Pendergast said there was “a very high volume of traffic” with the collision taking place late on the Friday afternoon of a long weekend.
“We had traffic blocked in two directions, so scene safety was a priority,” Pendergast said.
“We respond to this intersection several times a year and are hoping for some improvement in the near future.”
Drivers are being reminded to stay vigilant and take a little extra time to get to their destination during the long weekend.
