Two seriously injured in Hwy 11 crash

Two Stettler residents were taken to a Calgary hospital following a two-vehicle collision on Hwy 11, east of Red Deer, early Saturday morning.

Two Stettler residents were taken to a Calgary hospital following a two-vehicle collision on Hwy 11, east of Red Deer, early Saturday morning.

Blackfalds RCMP Cpl. Barry LaRocque said a Mercury Cougar driven by a 19-year-old Stettler man was traveling westbound when it lost control, crossed the centre line into the path of an eastbound Toyota Matrix around 8:10 a.m.

The driver and his passenger, a 21-year-old Stettler woman, suffered serious injuries and were taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital and later transported to a Calgary hospital.

The 28-year-old female driver of the Toyota suffered minor injuries and was treated at Red Deer Regional Hospital and later released.

As of Sunday afternoon, the two Stettler residents were in the intensive care unit at the Calgary hospital. LaRocque said slippery roads and weather were likely factors in the collision.

Hwy 11, about 5 kms east of Red Deer, was closed to traffic for several hours while the police and the collision analyst were on scene.

The investigation is ongoing. No charges have been laid at this time.
