Four dead, one injured, in Jasper National Park head-on crash

Alberta RCMP say the four people who were killed in a head-on collision in Jasper National Park are from two different countries.

JASPER — Alberta RCMP say the four people who were killed in a head-on collision in Jasper National Park are from two different countries.

Police say a southbound car crashed into a northbound motorhome at around 7 p.m. Wednesday on Highway 93 about 25 km south of the resort community.

Three of the dead were in the car — a 47-year-old man, his 42-year-old wife and their 15-year-old son.

A 79-year-old woman who was a passenger in the motorhome also died.

Her husband suffered serious injuries and was taken by air ambulance to an Edmonton hospital.

Police say alcohol was not a factor in the crash, but the cause is still under investigation.

“The people in the car were from one country and the people in the motorhome were from another country,” Sgt. Josee Valiquette said Thursday.

“We are in the process of notifying their families.”
