Two people were airlifted to hospital after a head-on crash south of Stettler early Tuesday morning.

Stettler RCMP were called to the scene of the collision about 19 km south of Stettler on Hwy 56. Once on scene, police found a pickup truck had collided with an SUV.

The female driver of the SUV had been ejected from the vehicle and was pinned underneath it. She was freed by the Stettler Regional Fire Department.

The male driver of the truck was trapped in his vehicle and also had to be removed.

STARS Air Ambulance was called and helicopters from both the Edmonton and Calgary bases were dispatched.

A spokesperson for STARS said the woman was taken to Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary in critical condition with potentially life-threatening injuries.

The man was taken to the University of Alberta hospital in Edmonton in stable condition with non life-threatening injuries.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and charges may be pending once the collision analyst’s report is complete.
