“A couple of factors seem to be the cause — not yielding, maybe speed was involved as well as equipment on the car. The tires are not adequate for the weather conditions,” said Sgt. Rodney Guthrie of the RCMP detachment in the district.

There were two people each in both the cars. They were checked by the ambulance and have been relieved as there were minor injuries, said Guthrie.
