(REGINA, SK) – A married couple were on a cross-country tour promoting Canada’s dairy industry by driving a tractor.
The tour has ended Monday in tragedy when a transport collided with the tractor north of Saskatoon, killing 55-year-old Bettina Schuurman, from Elmira, On, and leaving her husband Henk injured in hospital.
SaskMilk, a producer marketing board, confirmed the couple’s identity and said the family have been notified.
A spokesperson from Medavie Health Services has said the transport driver was not injured in the collision.
