Several people were sent to hospital with various injuries after three collisions on Hwy 2 in Central Alberta on Sunday.

The first incident occurred north of Innisfail around 4:30 p.m. when a northbound SUV lost control and rolled into the centre median. Two nurses and a pediatrician who were passing by stopped and assisted the five occupants of the vehicle, three of them children. All were later transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Both northbound and southbound traffic was affected while emergency crews assessed and treated injuries.

The second collision occurred around 6:30 p.m. in the southbound lanes near Gasoline Alley. Witnesses reported a single vehicle collision involving a motorcycle. The lone rider of the motorcycle was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The southbound lanes were limited to one lane of travel while emergency crews, with the assistance of a collision analyst, investigated the crash.

The third collision took place shortly after 7 p.m. when a male riding an ATV parallel to Hwy 2 became airborne and was ejected from the vehicle. He was not wearing a helmet and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. This incident occurred in the southbound lanes of the highway just north of 32nd Street and affected southbound traffic.

RCMP report neither speed nor alcohol are factors in any of the collisions.
