On Oct. 7th at 12:30 p.m. a red minivan was travelling southbound, south of Lacombe. The minivan left the roadway into the east ditch, travelled a short distance in the ditch and then struck several railway ties and an electrical box. In the process one of the railway ties also hit a north bound vehicle. The occupant of the red minivan was transported by ground ambulance to Red Deer Regional Hospital in serious condition. The occupant of the north bound vehicle was treated on scene and released.
