Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a two-vehicle collision that killed a 40-year-old Fort Qu’Appelle, Sask. woman early Saturday morning.
RCMP were called to a crash on a grid road between Lebret and Indian Head around 12:30 a.m. The woman was found deceased when police arrived.
She was a passenger in a car travelling east that was struck after swerving into the path of a westbound pickup truck, RCMP said in a media release.
The driver of the pickup truck was treated for minor injuries at the scene. The driver of the car was transported to hospital as a precaution.
Police said it appears alcohol was a factor and that charges will be forthcoming.
