Multiple collisions near Brooks


Around 1:30 AM, Brooks RCMP responded to a report of a multi vehicle collision on Highway 1 just west of Brooks. Police arrived on scene to discover 2 separate 3 vehicle collisions which occurred in the east bound lanes of Highway 1, directly across from where the Brooks Fire Department were dealing with the wreckage from a previous Semi Trailer fire. The second collision also involved 3 vehicles. All the collisions are believed to have occurred when the drivers were distracted from driving by watching the fire crews working on the wreckage on the opposite side of the Highway.
