A Mackwacis woman who climbed on the hood for a semi tractor and removed her clothes after a minor vehicle accident is receiving care.
Police say on Thursday the woman was travelling north on Secondary Highway 611 overpass and Hwy 2 when her vehicle hit the the ditch and smashing into the Welcome to Wetaskiwin sign. The woman left her vehicle and ran into the middle of the northbound lanes where she stood in front of a semi-trailer truck heading towards her.
The driver was able to stop in time before hitting the woman.
The woman jumped up on the tractor unit, climbed onto the hood then over it and made her way onto the two tank trailers it was hauling.
Once there, she sat down and refused to move, ending up removing her shirt and pants in the process.
Shortly an Alberta Sheriff member of the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit (ITU) arrived on scene.
The officer spoke with the woman and she voluntarily came down.
No charges are being laid and the woman voluntarily accepted transport to the Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury, where she was admitted and her clothing was returned to her.
