It is news no one wants to hear at any time, much less on Christmas Day.
Melville RCMP say Highway 10, 16 kilometers west of Melville near the community of Duff, had to be closed after a serious two-vehicle accident.
The accident happened just after 2:30 on Christmas morning.
The road was re-opened just before 8 o’clock
It is not known how many people were in the two vehicles, the extent of injuries suffered or what type of vehicles are involved.
