The long weekend hadn’t even officially begun when an accident occurred near Maple Creek May 17.
A 29-year-old woman and  four children were treated at the scene of a single-vehicle rollover on the Trans-Canada Highway near Maple Creek Thursday afternoon.
Two Maple Creek RCMP cruisers and EMS responded to the accident which occurred at about 12 p.m. approximately one kilometre west of the junction with Highway 21.
According to RCMP, a grey 2011 Mazda 3 vehicle with Manitoba plates was traveling westbound from Winnipeg, Man. to Calgary, Alta. when the accident occurred.
Police say the vehicle moved from the right driving lane, catching on the shoulder. As the driver attempted to return the vehicle to the road, the car went into the north ditch and rolled onto its roof.
Four children ages three, five, 10 and 13 and a 29-year-old female were treated at the scene and transported to Maple Creek Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
RCMP report it is likely that wearing seatbelts helped minimize injuries sustained by the occupants of the vehicle. No charges have been laid against the driver.
