A woman is dead and two others were taken to hospital after a single-vehicle crash on the Kawacatoose First Nation.

RCMP say all three people inside a pickup truck were ejected after the vehicle lost control, entered a ditch and hit an embankment early Sunday morning.

A passenger in the vehicle, 29-year-old Ramona Assoon of the Kawacatoose First Nation, died at the scene.

The 44-year old female driver from the Kawacatoose First Nation and a 22-year-old female passenger from Saskatoon were taken to hospital in Wynyard. The extent of their injuries wasn’t known.

Mounties say alcohol is considered to be a factor in the crash.
