Sunday’s stormy weather conditions led to several traffic collisions during the weekend.

Cpl. Jesse Foreman of the Oceanside RCMP said police responded to four collisions on Sunday, March 28, all of which were attributed to the sudden onslaught of hail and slush.

Foreman confirmed in an email to PQB News that while no serious injuries were reported, several vehicles sustained significant damage.

Foreman confirmed this incident took place at 11:14 a.m. when a woman’s vehicle skidded off the highway. He said she did not suffer any injuries as a result of the collision but was still taken to the hospital for unrelated reasons.
