Friday's blustery weather has kept emergency responders busy.
Mid-afternoon, crews were at the scene of a multi-vehicle crash on Highway 75 near Ste. Agathe. We have no additional information from that incident.
Meanwhile, Hanover Fire Chief Paul Wiebe says his crews were called to a crash on Highway 52, just west of Provincial Road 216 at about 12:30 pm on Friday. Wiebe says that has been a treacherous stretch the last few days. Friday's incident involved two vehicles. He notes both vehicles had been travelling at low speeds and there were no injuries.
Then, about an hour later, his fire department was called to another multi-vehicle crash in that same area. The initial collision involved two vehicles, but Wiebe says a third vehicle tried to avoid the crash and drove into the ditch. He says all occupants were checked over by EMS, but no one was transported to hospital.
Wiebe says there was an unfortunate incident that happened at one of the crashes Friday afternoon where a motorist drove through their barricade.
"These accidents are not only dangerous for the occupants but also for our responders," he notes.
Wiebe reminds motorists that if they see emergency crews or tow truck operators on the road, to slow down and give them room.
As of three o'clock Friday afternoon, Wiebe says Highway 52 is a combination of icy and reduced visibility.
