PHOTOS — Three hospitalized after collision on Hwy 20
A head-on collision between a car and a minivan on Hwy 20 sent three people to hospital early Tuesday afternoon.
“It looks like a northbound Ford F350 lost control on the road and that caused a southbound car to lose control, which crossed over the centre line and struck a northbound mini-van head-on,” Rimbey RCMP Sgt. Mark Groves said.
The crash occurred at about 1 p.m. between Rimbey and Bentley, near Forshee Community Hall.
He said a 40-year-old woman, of Rimbey, who was in the car, was seriously injured.
“Early responders had to use crowbars to pry the doors to get in to extricate her from the vehicle.”
A 65-year-old man and a 62-year-old woman, both of Red Deer, in the minivan, were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Groves said the northbound truck did not collide with another vehicle and ended up on the opposite side of the road.
He said no charges have been laid.
“Road conditions were extremely icy. They lost control in the icy conditions.”
He said a sanding truck went through the area to make it safe for emergency responders.
The highway was temporarily closed.
