Vulcan: Vulcan RCMP were dispatched to a two vehicle collision on November 2nd.
At about 8:30 AM, RCMP determined a northbound pick-up truck entered the southbound lane. A southbound SUV then entered the northbound lane, trying to avoid the truck. In an attempt to correct itself, the pick-up truck went into the northbound lane and struck the SUV head-on.
Both vehicles came to rest in the east ditch and the pick up truck became engulfed in flames. The driver of the SUV was pronounced dead at the scene, while the passenger was transported to Calgary Foothills Hospital in critical condition. The 16 year-old driver of the pick-up truck was transported to the Foothills hospital in stable condition.
Alcohol and road conditions weren't a factor in the collision. Highway 23 was closed for approximately 4 and a half hours due to the collision.
