Two people are dead following a single vehicle rollover on the O’Chiese First Nation on Sunday.

Rocky Mountain House RCMP say a vehicle with four occupants was travelling north near the grounds of the O’Chiese pow wow when the driver lost control of the vehicle around 3 p.m. The vehicle rolled and three of the occupants were ejected from the vehicle. None of the occupants was believed to be wearing seatbelts.

A 20-year-old female passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. STARS Air Ambulance transported a 27-year-old man, also a passenger, to the University of Alberta Hospital, where he later died.

Two other men, also in their 20s, were transported to local hospitals with undetermined injuries.

Police are not releasing the identities of the deceased pending notification of next of kin.

Speed and alcohol are believed to have been factors in the collision.

Police are expected to release an update when new information becomes available.

Charges are pending and the investigation continues.
