Two people were taken to hospital in Saskatoon with undetermined injuries following a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Highway 60 and Valley Road on Sunday, August 21.
The Saskatoon Fire Department responded with two units when the call was received at 1:43 p.m.
The first emergency responders from the fire department to arrive staged a fire truck in a “fend-off position” to protect the scene of the collision from traffic that was passing by at highway speeds.
Firefighters used extrication equipment to free one of the people trapped in a vehicle. Fire primary care paramedics assisted with patient assessment.
The Saskatoon Fire Department also removed automotive fluids that leaked onto the road from one of the vehicles involved.
Two persons from one vehicle were transported to hospital and four others were not transported.
Drivers on Valley Road will have to contend with a couple of detours this month.

The contractor is responsible for traffic accommodation for the duration of this project. The contractor is also required to accommodate local traffic to the affected businesses and residences.
All other traffic will be directed to use the above-mentioned detours. There will be a flag person on each end of the construction work zone directing traffic. The RM is advising motorists to proceed with caution through these zones.
