Driver killed in 3-car crash on Highway 2

WATCH ABOVE: Crumpled bits of metal littered Highway 2 near High River this morning, after a deadly collision. One man was killed, and a woman in her 60's was injured. As Mia Sosiak reports, police are trying to figure out how two of three vehicles, all going the same direction, ended up in a t-bone crash.

A 46-year-old man was killed in a highway crash in southern Alberta on Tuesday.

Emergency crews were called to Highway 2 north of 466 Avenue East, near High River, at around 7:15 a.m. The highway was closed for more than six hours while RCMP investigated.

RCMP said the collision involved a grain truck and two other vehicles, all of which were travelling northbound.

According to EMS, an adult male was pronounced dead at the scene. He had been driving a sedan involved in the crash.

A woman in her 60s, who had been driving an SUV, was rushed to the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the third vehicle was uninjured.

An RCMP collision analyst is working to determine what caused the collision. Investigators do not believe alcohol was a factor.
