STRATHMORE — A fire chief says an intersection near Calgary where three people were killed and four injured in a traffic collision is known to be dangerous.

Strathmore Fire Chief Mark Hellman says some people just don’t stop for the stop signs at the intersection.

Hellman says the crash Wednesday afternoon involving a grain truck slamming into a minivan was the worst his crews have ever seen.

A 17-year-old boy driving the minivan and a couple, both 75-years-old, died at the scene while the four injured were being treated at Calgary hospitals.

The girls, age 12 and 13, from Nova Scotia, were in stable condition.

A 22-year-old woman was in critical condition and a 23-year-old man was in stable condition.
