One woman is dead and two other people are in hospital after a head-on collision just north of Moose Jaw.
RCMP and Moose Jaw emergency crews were called to the Highway 2 crash just after 4:30 p.m. Sunday. A car travelling north collided with a truck, Mounties said in a media release.
The car’s driver and lone occupant, a woman, was found dead at the scene, police said. A man and woman in the truck were taken to Moose Jaw Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Both lanes of the highway are expected to be closed for several hours as RCMP investigate the crash.
The victim was an 80-year-old woman from Moose Jaw.
Weather and driving conditions were good at the time of the collision and are not believed to be factors, according to police. Both vehicles are expected to undergo full mechanical inspections as investigators continue to search for the cause of the crash.
