Head on collision near Hanna claims life of one person

Highway 9 near Hanna has been re-opened after a horrific Friday evening motor vehicle accident killed the mother of a little girl, who was airlifted to Calgary hospital with serious injuries.

A 38-year old woman from the Calgary area was killed in the collision east of Hanna, a town of 2,800 that is 211 kilometres northeast of Calgary.

A child in her vehicle was transported by STARS to hospital in Calgary with serious injuries.

The woman’s car collided with a pick up truck. The two occupants, one adult male and an adult female from Saskatchewan, were transported by ground ambulance to hospital in Hanna with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

RCMP say the cause of the collision is still under investigation, but alcohol is not believed to be a factor. Roads were in poor condition because of wind, snow and slush.

The name of the deceased is not being released until all next of kin notifications have been made.
