Two people were injured after a vehicle hit an icy patch on the highway and went into the ditch south of Saskatoon Sunday morning.
Saskatoon RCMP were called at approximately 10 a.m. to the scene on Highway 11, approximately 10 kilometres south of Dundurn.
RCMP believe the north-bound vehicle lost control on the icy highway, went into the ditch, and rolled.
There were two occupants in the vehicle at the time. The 55-year-old male driver was injured and taken to hospital by ambulance. The 57-year-old female passenger was trapped inside the vehicle, but was freed by Dundurn Rescue. She was transported by STARS air ambulance to hospital in Saskatoon.
Both people were reported in stable condition. They are both from Ontario.
RCMP say poor driving conditions were a contributing factor to the accident.
