Man killed, three in hospital after two car crash near Delburne

One man was killed and a woman was seriously injured in a two vehicle crash near Delburne.

Three Hills RCMP are investigating the Monday morning crash on Hwy 21 at the Delburne entrance.

Police said a pickup truck was travelling southbound on Hwy 21 when it crossed the centre line and entered the opposite ditch. The driver of the truck brought the vehicle back onto the road where it entered into oncoming traffic and collided with a northbound SUV.

The 61-year-old male driver of the SUV was taken to hospital and pronounced dead. The female passenger in the SUV was also taken to hospital with serious injuries.

A 25-year-old man and a 46-year-old man from the truck left on foot, but were brought back by witnesses to receive medical attention. They were taken to hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic was re-routed around the collision scene for several hours. Three Hills RCMP, an RCMP Collision Analyst and Red Deer General Investigation Section continue to investigate.
