RCMP say a car heading west on Highway 26 collided head-on with an eastbound vehicle. The eastbound car rolled into the south ditch and ended up on its roof.

A passing motorist saw the scene and called 911.

The 37-year-old man driving the westbound car was killed in the collision, as was a 10-month-old boy who was inside the car at the time. Officers say both of them were from Wetaskiwin.

The 67-year-old woman driving the eastbound car was also declared dead at the scene. She was from Two Hills, police said.

RCMP say all three of the people involved were wearing seatbelts.

The collision closed Highway 26 in both directions overnight, but the roadway has since been reopened.
