Two people died in a three-vehicle collision on Highway 11 between Sylvan Lake and Red Deer late Wednesday afternoon.
Blackfalds RCMP said, at about 4:30 p.m., an eastbound SUV lost control and collided with a westbound SUV. A westbound car struck the two SUVs.
The two female occupants of the eastbound SUV were declared dead at the scene. The two occupants of the westbound SUV were taken to hospital.
The lone occupant of the car was treated on scene.
Traffic was diverted for about five hours around the crash, which happened between Range Roads 283 and 284 near Alberta Springs Golf Resort.
The cause of the collision remains under investigation, but icy road conditions were a factor.
