Livestock Semi Tractor Trailer Rollover near Hanna

Written by Submitted

The Hanna RCMP, Hanna/Special Areas Fire and Hanna EMS responded to a call of a rolled over semi tractor-trailer hauling cattle on Highway 36 north of Township Road 340 on February 11, 2019, at 12:30 p.m.

The investigation determined that while going around a curve on Highway 36, the load of cattle shifted and caused the semi to lose control and roll over onto the passenger side.

The semi unit came to a stop in the ditch after skidding for approximately 60 meters.

The driver, who had non-life threatening injuries, was transported to the Hanna Hospital by EMS.

The Hanna Fire Department utilized their livestock containment system to prevent the cattle from roaming free along the highway.

Of the 42 head of cattle on the trailer, two were euthanized at the scene by the RCMP.

Emergency crews are still at the scene so motorists are asked to use caution if travelling through the area.

No charges are being laid in this investigation.
