One person is dead and two others injured after a collision on the Trans-Canada Highway near Wolseley.

RCMP say a southbound car collided with an eastbound minivan towing a flatbed trailer at the east entrance to the community Wednesday morning.

A 21-year-old Wolseley man who was a passenger in the car suffered critical injuries and later died in hospital. His name hasn’t been released.

The drivers of both vehicles were also taken to hospital. The extent of their injuries isn’t known.

Eastbound traffic on Highway 1 was restricted to one lane for several hours while police investigated.
