KITSCOTY — A collision between a service rig and a semi-tanker carrying diesel fuel has caused a fire and closed a major Alberta highway.
Police say the semi was going east on Highway 16 near Kitscoty when it struck a service rig trying to turn onto the highway.
The collision caused the tanker to jack-knife and the tank containing the diesel was puncture.
Both east and westbound traffic is being rerouted as fire crews work to put out the fire and clear the debris.
Neither driver was seriously injured.
Kitscoty is west of Lloydminster on the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary.
