STARS Air Ambulance takes off with a female patient following Friday's crash with a school bus south of Dalmeny

UPDATED: Four people were injured and STARS Air Ambulance was on scene following a three-vehicle crash just south of Dalmeny at 3:20 p.m. Friday, March 18.

Witnesses say a southbound minivan stopped behind a school bus that was attempting to make a left turn. The minivan was struck from behind by a half-ton truck and the minivan subsequently collided with the school bus that was carrying 10 children at the time. No children on the bus were injured. All were taken off the bus safely and reunited with their parents.

The 46-year-old woman driving the minivan was airlifted by STARS to hospital in Saskatoon with serious injuries. The 40-year-old woman and two children in the half-ton truck were taken by MD Ambulance to hospital in Saskatoon with non-life threatening injuries.

Access in and out of Dalmeny was restricted while emergency responders treated the injured and removed debris and traffic was diverted west and north to allow motorists into and out of the town.

Warman RCMP, Corman Park Police, Dalmeny Police, Dalmeny Fire Rescue, Martensville Fire Rescue and MD Ambulance all responded to the call.

An RCMP collision analyst was on scene and the matter remains under investigation.

 

UPDATED: Woman charged with impaired driving after three killed on Highway 11

Three people, including a two-year-old boy, are dead after a two-vehicle crash early Sunday morning, January 3.

Waman RCMP have charged Catherine Loye McKay, 49, of Saskatoon with three counts of Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle Causing Death. McKay has been remanded into custody and will be appearing in Saskatoon Provincial Court at 10:00 am, Monday January 4.

Saskatoon Fire Department, along with Warman RCMP and MD Ambulance, were dispatched to Highway 11 and Wanuskewin Road at 12:30 am to the two-vehicle crash. On arrival, two vehicles were in the ditch on the north side of Highway 11 just west of Wanuskewin Road. Firefighters extricated two deceased occupants from the front seats of a small car. A Fire Department Primary Care Paramedic went with MD Ambulance to transport one of two children from the back seat of the same vehicle to Royal University Hospital.

The two children sustained critical injuries and the youngest, a two-year-old boy, later died in hospital just hours after the collision. The driver of the second vehicle, a 49-year-old female, was also transported to hospital with undetermined injuries.

The intersection was blocked to traffic for several hours while police investigated the cause of the crash. It has since been re-opened.
