The community of Meacham, Sask. is “reeling” after the deaths of David and Amanda Savage and their one-year-old son, Tyson, according to the village’s mayor.

The family was killed in a two-vehicle crash east of Saskatoon on Highway 5 near St. Denis on Wednesday morning.

“Everybody is reeling,” mayor Marion Carlson said, adding that it’s difficult to talk about because her son was a friend of David Savage.

The Savage family farmed in an area just east of Meacham, Carlson said.

“It’s a huge loss. It’s incomprehensible – is what it is,” she said.
