Saskatoon firefighters had to free a driver from one rolled vehicle in the city on Friday, then a driver freed himself by crawling out a window in a separate rollover.

The first incident was a two-vehicle collision at 5:20 p.m. at 20th Street and Avenue B South, where one of the trucks involved rolled onto its roof.

One of the occupants in the rolled vehicle was trapped and fire paramedics “immediately began extrication,” according to a fire department news release.

The person was freed within 10 minutes of firefighters’ arrival on the scene. While the truck sustained major damage, the driver had only minor injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution, the news release said. The driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.

The second incident was a single-vehicle rollover just after 7 p.m. just south of Saskatoon on Clarence Avenue. The driver was exiting the vehicle via a window as crews arrived, a Saskatoon Fire Department news release said.
