One person has died after a serious collision between a semi-trailer and a Jeep amid snowfall warnings Tuesday afternoon.
RCMP said the crash happened east of Airdrie on Secondary Highway 567, between range roads 285 and 284, at around 1:40 p.m.
EMS and RCMP said a 45-year-old man from Airdrie was the lone occupant in one of the vehicles and was taken to the Foothills Medical Centre in serious, life-threatening condition where he later died.
Investigators remained on scene and said the intersection was temporarily blocked until 6 p.m.
“Road conditions were icy and slippery at the time of the collision,” an Airdrie Rural RCMP news release said.
RCMP asked people to avoid travel in and around the Airdrie area due to “very poor” driving conditions.
