Two people are dead and another is seriously hurt after a late Thursday afternoon fatal crash north of Calgary.
Just before 4 p.m., emergency crews were called to Hwy. 2A near Twp. Rd. 293 between Carstairs and Crossfield for a collision between a car and a pick-up truck.
The car's two occupants, a male and female of unknown age, were both pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the pick-up truck, a male in his 40s, was airlifted by STARS to Foothills hospital in Calgary with numerous serious, albeit non-life threatening injuries.
Hwy. 2A remains closed in both directions while the collision is investigated.
