It was a busy couple of nights for first responders in the Ponoka area.
Ponoka RCMP confirmed they responded to the scene of a single vehicle rollover on Range Road 262 just outside of Ponoka, at about 10: 30 p.m. on Thursday, May 13.
The Ponoka County Regional Fire Services East District and EMS were also on the scene.
STAR-3 air ambulance was dispatched from Edmonton at 10:48 p.m. to the scene, according to their Twitter account.
There were two females in the vehicle. The passenger was airlifted to the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton with serious but non-life threatening injuries, and the driver was escorted to the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre by EMS to be treated for minor injuries.
There were no conditions observed at the scene that would have contributed to the accident. No charges have been laid a this point, and the file is still under investigation.
On Wednesday, May 12, EMS and fire services responded to an accident on Hwy. 2 and Hwy. 53.
Although the incident was initially called in as something more serious, such as a multiple vehicle collision, it turned out to be a single motorcycle, says Donna Noble, protective services manager for Ponoka County.
The driver had lost control and the bike had gone down. The driver sustained minor injuries.
STARS Air Ambulance was dispatched at 11:39 p.m., but was likely stood down once the situation was further assessed, says Noble.
STARS was also dispatched to the Bashaw area at 7:46 p.m. on May 12.
