Two youth were killed and a third was airlifted to hospital in Alberta after a crash Sunday, Sept. 23, on the Alaska Highway.
The crash happened at the north end of the Kiskatinaw Bridge around 5 p.m., when a southbound van turned left into a roadside pullout and was hit by a northbound pickup truck, according to RCMP.
There were 11 passengers involved in the accident, all with varying degrees of injury.
Of the six passengers in the van, two youth were killed, and a third was airlifted by STARS Ambulance to hospital in Alberta.
RCMP couldn't say how serious the other passengers were injured.
Impairment isn't considered a factor, however, driver error may have been a factor.
The crash is being investigated by Dawson Creek RCMP, traffic services, collision analysts, and the BC Coroners Service.
This is a developing story, and will be updated as more information becomes available.
