Airdrie man badly injured in three-vehicle collision near Sundre

Collision happened about 1 p.m. near Sundre

The driver of a vintage automobile was airlifted by STARS air ambulance to a Calgary hospital following a chain-reaction collision near Sundre on Thursday.

Emergency responders were called at about 1 p.m. to the scene of the three-car collision just east of Sundre on Highway 27, near Range Road 52.

Police said a westbound 2009 pickup truck crossed the centre line and collided with an eastbound 1963 car.

“The collision caused the car to spin, where it struck a westbound 2018 pickup truck that was unable to avoid the collision,” said RCMP.

“The lone driver of the car, a 41-year-old male driver from Airdrie, suffered serious life-threatening injuries and was transported by STARS air ambulance to a Calgary-area hospital for immediate medical intervention.”

The lone passenger of the 2009 pickup truck, a 43-year-old male driver from Innisfail, suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the local hospital for treatment.

Three occupants of the other pickup were uninjured.
