Half an hour later, a Saskatoon Transit bus hit a guardrail near the North Circle Drive Bridge. Three passengers were rushed to hospital with minor injuries. The bus driver was given a ticket for driving without care and attention.
Also, another car came off the road and hit a traffic light as it exited Circle Drive onto Preston Avenue. The light pole blocked the traffic.
The Saskatoon Police have issued a warning to warn drivers on the streets in and around the city.
Snow creates slippery conditions and poor visibility. Drivers are asked to reduce their speed and leave more space between them and the vehicle in front.
Saskatoon Police respond to another collision after a vehicle hit a photoelectric barrier exiting Circle Drive East on Preston Avenue North.
The driver is said not to have been injured, but the light barrier hinders the traffic. The town courtyards have been notified, but motorists are asked to consider an alternative route.
