EDMONTON – RCMP believe alcohol may have been a factor in a collision that killed two brothers Saturday night.
RCMP and EMS crews were called to a single-vehicle collision near Goodfish Lake, in the County of Smoke Lake, around 8:00 p.m.
Two passengers were pronounced dead at the scene after being thrown from the vehicle, RCMP say.
The men have been identified as 23-year-old Jordan Cardinal and 33-year-old David Cardinal. Both men lived in the Saddle Lake/Goodfish Lake area. RCMP say they were brothers of the driver of the vehicle, 18-year-old Tarik Cardinal.
Tarik was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Officers say the driver had been wearing his seat belt at the time of the collision.
The investigation is ongoing, but RCMP believe alcohol and a lack of seat belts may have been factors in the collision.
