Traffic Accident

Saskatoon Police have responded to a two vehicle accident in the area of Taylor Street and Kingsmere Boulevard that occurred at 2:30 p.m. this afternoon.

A car pulled away from the curb heading east and crossed two lanes of traffic. The car sideswiped a tow truck also traveling eastbound. The vehicle contact and momentum of the tow truck carried the truck into a power pole. The pole was sheared off at the base and became a traffic hazard. It appears as though there were no injuries as a result of the collision.

Saskatoon Police patrol and traffic units are at the scene. The area has been barricaded and traffic is being restricted. Sask Power has also been called out to deal with the power pole.

Anyone traveling to that area is advised to take another route.

Police are investigating the accident and it is likely that charges will be laid against the driver of the car.
