A 55-year-old driver died Thursday morning in a two-vehicle collision in northeastern Alberta.
Cold Lake RCMP said a preliminary investigation indicated a truck was travelling north on Highway 28 at around 7:40 a.m. when it collided head-on near Range Road 624 with an SUV that was travelling south.
A third vehicle drove into a ditch to avoid the collision but the lone occupant was not injured, police said.
The driver of the SUV died at the scene, according to RCMP. Police said the victim was a resident of Ardmore, Alta.
RCMP said the driver of the truck was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Cold Lake RCMP and an RCMP collision analyst are investigating the cause of the fatal crash.
