A man has been charged after a three-car collision that took place in Lacombe last weekend.

On the afternoon of July 26, emergency crews responded to a collision at the intersection of 46 Ave. and Hwy. 2A. Police Chief Steve Murray said that he did not know exactly what had happened, but police had ascertained that one of the vehicles had entered the intersection when it was not safe, causing the collision.

All the occupants of the three vehicles could remove themselves from the vehicles and had little to no injuries, said Fire Chief Ed Van Delden.

He added that one individual had a cut on his arm but refused medical treatment for the injury.

As no extrications were necessary, Van Delden said the fi re department assisted by searching vehicles and cleaning up some fluids that had spilled from the vehicles.

“It kind of sounded worse (than it was),” said Van Delden. “That’s the nature of those calls sometimes, that its way different than you had imagined.”

Murray said that because of the collision, an 87-year-old male driver had been charged with failing to properly stop before entering a roadway.
