Two people were killed and three injured on Wednesday evening when the vehicle they were in rolled north of Rocky Mountain House.
Rocky Mountain House RCMP Const. Tom Meloche said on Thursday that a woman, 53, and a man, 48, died in the single-vehicle collision. Their identities have not been released.
There were five people in the vehicle — one injured person was taken by STARS to hospital and the other two were transported by ground ambulance. They are now in stable condition, said Meloche.
All were from Rocky Mountain House and they were driving to the O’Chiese First Nation reserve, he said.
The crash happened at about 6:18 p.m,. 20 km northwest of Hwy 11 on the Buster Creek Road, or about 25 km north of Rocky.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the vehicle left the road from a curve and rolled. The road is paved but winds, said Meloche.
RCMP have not yet determined the cause of the collision.
