A 35-year-old Calgary man has died after his car collided with a semi-trailer northeast of Calgary on Wednesday afternoon, according to RCMP.
The crash happened at highways 9 and 566 at around 1 p.m., RCMP said.
Police said a car heading east on Highway 566 collided with the fuel tanks of a semi-trailer travelling north on Highway 9.
STARS airlifted the victim — the lone person in the car — to a Calgary hospital where he died from his injuries, police said, adding that they won’t release his name.
The semi-trailer driver was not injured.
“A quantity of diesel fuel spilled out of the semi-truck on the scene and was cleaned up by hazardous materials crews,” RCMP said.
Officers said they likely won’t lay charges.
