An overturned semi held up some traffic on Highway 1 between Moose Jaw and Swift Current Thursday afternoon.
The RCMP said that officers were present along the road between Ernfold and Chaplin after a semi that was heading west crashed. The truck evidently lost control, entering the ditch and rolling onto its side.
The man who was driving was taken to the hospital in Swift Current. The RCMP wasn't aware how badly he was hurt.
RCMP said road conditions were "good" when the accident occurred.
It may seem like harmless fun to the person on the ground but people aiming laser pointers at planes above Regina are becoming a big concern.
This year alone there has been 12 reported cases of people shooting laser-pointers at planes while they're in the air. That's up from five in 2012, and one in 2011.
President and CEO of the Regina International Airport Jim Hunter says this type of activity is extremely dangerous.
A man has died after a collision between a mini-van and a semi-trailer on Highway 21 near Kerrobert.
According to RCMP, at around 12:30 p.m. Sunday, the southbound mini-van went into the northbound lane. A semi-trailer happened to be coming by at the time and tried to avoid the oncoming vehicle, but wasn’t able to.
The two vehicles collided head-on just south of the Highway 31 junction, killing the lone occupant of the mini-van. The semi driver was physically unharmed.
All this cold weather in Regina has many people of warmer climates, according to numbers from CAA Travel.
“Ever since the cold hit, it has been very busy and definitely people want to get out of here sooner rather than later,” said Angie Thachuk assistant manager at CAA Travel.
Thachuk said people started booking flights for this winter season as early as last year, so space is becoming more and more limited. That’s especially true on connecting flights to Costa Rica.

Aviation at the Saskatoon airport.
"They're getting ready to tow that 1900 Beechcraft into the hangar so hopefully it doesn't freeze," he said, pointing to other members of the ground crew working on a nearby plane.
As a member of the ground crew, he's making sure planes are fueled, their power charged and the ramp is clear of snow.
"In a 12 hour shift, you're probably out there maybe six hours at a time," he said.
The winter storm that hit south Saskatchewan on Monday wasn't as bad as it was supposed to be, but we didn’t escape complete.
Regina had a few centimetres of snow but areas south and west of the city got a whole lot more. A section of Highway 1 west of Swift Current still has a "travel not advised" warning but the alert that had been issued for areas west of that has now been ended. A travel warning for the Moose Jaw area on Highway 13 has been rescinded as well.
Stormy weather in Alberta has helped cause flight delays at the Regina International Airport.
Southern Saskatchewan did not see the amount of snow expected Monday but surrounding areas have.
Airport CEO Jim Hunter says bad weather to the west and south of Regina has wrecked a bit of havoc on air travel.
"Any storms like this will maybe, possibly delay aircraft getting in here because other centres from which they originate are experiencing the weather, Calgary being a good example of that," said Hunter.
People across southern Saskatchewan are getting ready for a real winter blizzard but it appears Regina and points east will be spared the brunt of the system.
Environment Canada issued a winter storm warning on Sunday covering regions across the southern half of the province. Monday morning Regina and areas to the east were dropped from those warnings.
RCMP have reopened a section of Highway 16 that was closed Saturday following a 25 car pile up that sent 13 to hospital.
The accident happened around 10 a.m. near Maymont, a small town about an hour northwest of Saskatoon. RCMP say heavy fog was a factor in the crashes.
With the Grey Cup festival finished, Monday was the busiest day the Regina International Airport (RIA) has ever had.
On Thursday, RIA CEO Jim Hunter said that they had 3,152 people outbound Monday, a new record for the airport.
“It was a pretty interesting day, but I’m very proud of the screening folks. They had the lines set up and everything went very, very smoothly,” said Hunter.
