Two injured in crash at intersection near Bowden

An alleged blown stop sign led to a two-vehicle crash west of Bowden on Thursday.

Innisfail RCMP were called to a crash that was observed by a member of the Red Deer County patrol shortly after 4 p.m.

RCMP said the county patrol officer saw a vehicle travelling at a high-rate of speed, south on Range Road 14, going through a stop sign at Hwy 587 when it collided with a westbound vehicle.

Innisfail RCMP were joined by Red Deer Integrated Traffic Services, fire and ambulance.

Police allege a 37-year-old male, driving a truck, continued through the intersection controlled by a stop sign when it collided with another truck, driven by a 55-year-old Lacombe man.

Both drivers were the lone occupants of the vehicles and were taken to hospital by ambulance.

A third vehicle travelling east on Hwy 587 swerved into the ditch on the south side to avoid the collision.

The matter is under investigation by Innisfail RCMP and charges are pending. Alcohol is not considered a factor.
