The downtown core of Swift Current will be slow-moving for a little while today.

As RCMP are working together with firefighters and tow services to clean up a crash that occurred on Central Avenue North, just yards away from the Cheadle Street Intersection.

A white Ford F-150 has crashed into the storefront of The Sputtergotch Toy Company. The vehicle also sent a cement planter/bin into the storefront of Prarie Soul Jewelry + Gift. 

The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital. It is unknown if they were transported as a precautionary measure, or if they are seriously injured.

Nobody else was injured, although both storefronts will need extensive repairs.

Until the scene is cleared, it is recommended that motorists find an alternate route around the crash site.

Swift Current Online will provide updates as they become available.
