Firefighters and emergency services were soon on scene. The 77-year-old male driver and lone occupant of the van was taken to an Edmonton hospital.

A 28-year-old woman, who had been driving the car, her 53-year-old female passenger and a one-year-old boy had to be removed from the wreckage and were taken to an Edmonton hospital by ambulance.

All suffered serious injuries and remain in stable condition in hospital.

STARS was unable to respond because of bad weather.
