A Granum, Alta., man is dead after two semi trucks collided on Highway 3 west of Coalhurst Friday morning.

Coaldale RCMP say both trucks were travelling east on Highway 3 near the Kipp Road intersection when they collided at approximately 9:50 a.m.

One semi hauling lumber caught on fire.

The driver of one of the trucks was pronounced dead at the scene, and RCMP say his next of kin has been notified.

Eastbound traffic on Highway 3 was expected to be diverted for several hours as a RCMP traffic reconstructionist investigated the collision.
