A man was taken to hospital in serious condition Saturday evening after a collision between a car and semi-truck on Highway 2 south of Edmonton.

Wetaskiwin RCMP said the crash happened just before 7 p.m., near the Highway 616 exit — near the town of Millet, about 20 km south of Leduc, Alta.

Police said the car had been parked on the side of the highway when the collision occurred.

The man, who RCMP said was “associated to the car,” was transported to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The northbound lanes of the QEII were closed and diverted while police investigated the collision for several hours. The lanes were reopened later in the evening.
