An off-duty Yorkton RCMP member helped avert tragedy this weekend.
The member was heading home to a neighbouring community after the graveyard shift Saturday, and spotted a vehicle that had crashed and ended on the rail tracks.
When she approached to offer medical help, she heard the sound of an approaching train.
She grabbed her flashlight, ran down the tracks and managed to get the train to stop in time.
The crash victim was taken to hospital for treatment.
