WATCH ABOVE: RCMP are investigating a deadly crash near Nampa which has left one child dead and four injured after vehicle collision.


A crash near Nampa, Alta. Friday night has left a girl dead and sent four others to hospital, according to RCMP.

Police said at around 5:55 p.m., a pickup truck was travelling westbound on Township Road 810 when it failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a semi-truck headed northbound on Highway 2.

Mounties said a girl died after being thrown from the pickup truck while four others inside the vehicle were rushed to hospital.

The other occupants were a 34-year-old woman who is in serious condition, and three children who police said did not appear to have suffered any life-threatening injuries.

Police said the children sent to hospital were all under the age of seven.

The driver of the semi-truck was fine.

RCMP continue to investigate what caused the crash but said the weather conditions were foggy at the time of the collision and that appears to have played a role.

The age of the girl who died was not released and police said the identities of those involved are not being released.

Nampa is located in northern Alberta and is about 460 kilometres north of Edmonton.
