Two people were killed and two others were injured in a two vehicle collision south of Hanna, Alta., on Tuesday.

It happened at around 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 36 and Highway 570.

RCMP said in a Tuesday news release that a 2017 Hyundai Tucson was traveling eastbound on Highway 570, crossing Highway 36, when it was struck by a northbound semi trailer.

Two women in the Tuscon, ages 32 and 33, were pronounced dead at the scene. Two men in the vehicle, meanwhile, were treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

STARS Air Ambulance was requested for one of the patients, but could not respond due to weather conditions.

The driver of the semi trailer, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, was not injured.

Highway 36 was closed while RCMP investigated.
