A 36 year old mother and her 2 year old child escaped injury this afternoon after their vehicle was involved in a collision.
Police were called to the intersection of Kingsmere Blvd. and Costigan Road just before 1:00 PM today after a vehicle that was traveling north on Kingsmere went out of control and into the front yard of a house on Costigan. The vehicle came to rest after striking an ornamental pole in the yard. Traffic was restricted while emergency crews worked to clear the area. MD Ambulance and SFD personnel were on scene , however despite being shook up the two occupants of the vehicle did not require further medical care.
Investigators believe the driver swerved to avoid a barricade which was being used to mark a manhole in the roadway. The woman, from Saskatoon, has been charged with driving without due care and attention.
