RCMP attended a Drayton Valley collision which sent three people to hospital.

Three people were sent to hospital after a three-vehicle collision approximately five Km north of Drayton Valley near Rocky Rapids on Thursday afternoon.

The Drayton Valley collision occurred at the intersection of Highway 22 and Secondary Highway 621 just before 6 p.m.

Staff Sergeant Brian Jones of the Drayton Valley RCMP says police believe an Alberta Justice and Solicitor General Commercial Enforcement vehicle was crossing Highway 22, heading east with its emergency lights activated and flashing.

The enforcement vehicle flipped on the driver side when it was struck by a northbound car.  It then slid into a third vehicle that was heading west at the intersection.

The intersection is controlled by stop signs for east and west bound traffic.

The 34-year old Commercial Vehicle enforcement officer was taken to hospital in Drayton Valley by ambulance and was released later that same night.  The driver of the northbound vehicle was a 38-year old woman from Spruce Grove.  She was taken to hospital in Drayton Valley and later transferred to hospital in Edmonton.

The driver of the third vehicle, a 53-year old woman from Rocky Rapids was transported by ambulance to hospital in Drayton Valley and was released from hospital later Thursday evening.

An RCMP Collision Analyst has attended the collision site and is assisting Drayton Valley RCMP in their investigation into the crash.  At this time, there has been no decision concerning charges.

Traffic on Highway 621/Township Road 500 was diverted for several hours to allow for clean up and investigation.
