Rosetown Fire Department suffered the tragic loss of a fellow member on Wednesday.

Emergency services were called to a crash between two semi-trucks on Highway 4 roughly 22 kilometres north of Rosetown. No one was injured in the two-vehicle collision.

RCMP said their investigation shows one truck was entering Highway 4 from the west and turning north when it was struck by a southbound semi on Highway 4.

While responding to the crash, a firefighter who was assisting at the scene was struck by a passing semi-truck.

Multiple fire departments from around the province have sent their condolences via social media to Morrison’s family and the community of Rosetown. Rosetown is roughly 110 kilometres southwest of Saskatoon.
