Two people are in hospital with serious injuries after a crash on Ring Road during morning rush hour Monday.
Regina police were sent to the area of Ross Avenue and Ring Road around 9 a.m., after a courier truck and a Honda Civic collided and ended up in the south ditch of Ring Road.
Police said when officers arrived, there was a man trying to speak to a woman in the car. Another man at the scene told police he was an off-duty firefighter.
Neither the driver-side nor passenger doors of the Civic could be opened.
With the help of these men, an officer was able to help stabilize the people inside the car until Regina fire services and EMS arrived could extract them.
A 37-year-old man and 36-year-old woman were taken to hospital with serious injuries.
The driver of the truck was not taken to the hospital.
Police said the preliminary investigation shows the Honda Civic was northbound when it crossed the ditch and collided with the courier truck, which was in the southbound lanes.
The reasons for the loss of control of the Civic are not yet known.
The collision is still under investigation.
Anyone who witnessed the incident, and has not yet given a statement to police, is encouraged to contact the service at 306-777-6500.
