Fatal rollover in central Alberta on Highway 2

A woman died Thursday afternoon after a rollover on Highway 2.

Ponoka RCMP responded to a 911 call of a single-vehicle collision on the QEII southbound at the Highway 2A overpass just after 3:30 p.m. The adult female was the lone occupant of the vehicle.

An investigation indicated an SUV was travelling southbound and the driver lost control, entering the ditch. The vehicle rolled in the west ditch, where it came to rest.

Emergency crews responded and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

RCMP say that icy road conditions were a contributing factor and the incident remains under investigation.
