One person is dead after a vehicle rolled over on a road southwest of Saskatoon.

The Saskatoon Fire Department (SFD) received a call close to 4:45 p.m. on Saturday that a vehicle was lying on its roof to the side of Valley Road.

A media release, sent out on Sunday morning, stated “extrication was performed using cutting tools and spreaders,” by fire crews. The release said an ambulance and Saskatchewan RCMP were also at the scene.

A fire battalion chief couldn’t say when the person died but told Global News fire fighters were only one scene for about an hour.
