VERNON RIVER - A car operated by two Souris area residents hydroplaned off the highway near Vernon River Friday morning during the heavy downpour of rain.
RCMP Const. Jeff Dow said the two occupants were wearing their seatbelts and sustained only minor injuries after leaving the roadway and travelling about 10 metres along the ditch.
Both victims were extracted from their Chrysler Sebring by the Vernon River fire department and taken to Kings County Memorial hospital.
