Red Deer boy killed in Hwy 2 collision near Millet overpass

The southbound lanes of Hwy 2 near Millet have reopened following a fatal two-vehicle collision this morning.

A three-year-old boy from Red Deer died in a two-vehicle collision on Hwy 2 Thursday morning.

Ponoka RCMP say at about 9 a.m., the driver of a northbound pickup truck lost control of his vehicle, crossed the median and struck a southbound van two km south of the Millet overpass.

The boy who died was a passenger in the truck. His mother and father are in serious but stable condition, and a one-year-old child received a minor injury.

No names are being released at this time at the request of the family.

The family was transported to University Hospital in Edmonton.

Police say road and weather conditions were contributing factors in the crash.

It has not been determined why the vehicle left the road. The occupants of the van were not injured.

RCMP do not anticipate laying charges in the crash.
