The driver of a pickup was taken to hospital after the truck rear-ended a semi-trailer Friday morning near Lumsden.

RCMP say a semi hauling two trailers loaded with cement was driving slowly up a hill on Highway 11 when it was rear-ended by a pickup truck around 6 a.m.

The male driver of the pickup was taken to hospital in Regina. The extent of his injuries wasn’t known.

The two male occupants in the semi weren’t hurt.

Northbound traffic was down to one lane while crews worked to offload the trailers.
