A charge of careless driving has been laid against one of the drivers involved in a fatal collision on Hwy 21 near Three Hills on Aug. 4.

Sherry Ann Kirk of Three Hills died enroute to hospital and two other people were injured during the collision involving a truck hauling a travel trailer, a Jeep SUV and a motorcycle.

Sgt. Joe Sangster, head of the Three Hills RCMP detachment, said Jeep collided with the back of the RV unit, which had stopped to wait for another vehicle to make a lefthand turn.

The Jeep then flipped onto its side and collided with the northbound motorcycle, said Sangster.

Jeep driver Jennifer Dale of Trochu was taken to hospital in Red Deer with serious injuries. She has now been charged with careless driving under the Traffic Safety Act. The driver of the truck that had been hauling the trailer suffered minor injuries.

Sangster did not have the ages of the victim or the accused available when contacted on Sunday.
