Two youths face criminal charges after a collision in northeast Red Deer sent one man to hospital with serious injuries on Wednesday.

Witnesses said the Ford F350 truck was travelling west on 67th Street when it crossed the median and struck an eastbound Mazda truck. The collision happened at 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of 67th Street and Carrington Drive.

The force of the collision left the Ford truck on its side. Passersby assisted the occupants of the Ford truck to exit the vehicle. The male driver and female passenger then fled on foot into the Clearview neighbourhood. The second driver had to be extricated from his Mazda truck using the Jaws of Life. He was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

A police dog was able to track the Ford truck driver and passenger to a home in Clearview Ridge where they were taken into custody. Police say the truck they were driving was reported stolen.

The names of the two 17-year-olds charged will not be released because they are minors.
