Members of the Drumheller RCMP, the Drumheller Fire Department and Dalum Fire Department had to act as wranglers on Highway 56 south of Drumheller responding to an overturned cattle liner. Shortly after noon on Monday, emergency services responded to the single vehicle incident. The tractor-trailer southbound appeared to have left the road and overturned in the ditch. The driver was treated on scene and released. Cattle involved in the rollover were corralled into the adjacent field to await safe transportation. The investigation continues.
