One person is in life-threatening condition after their car collided with a moose on Highway QEII near Blackfalds early Saturday morning.
RCMP said it happened just before 2 a.m. north of Highway 11A.
The car was heading south when it hit a moose, which caused the vehicle to leave the road and go into the west ditch, RCMP said.
The driver was flown to an Edmonton-area hospital by STARS Air Ambulance. The passenger suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a Red Deer hospital by ground ambulance.
RCMP said speed and alcohol are not considered factors in the crash.
