One teen is dead after a collision between a car and a pickup truck near Grande Prairie Monday.

The accident happened at Highway 40 and Correction Line at around 4:15 p.m. local time.

Grande Prairie RCMP say the 17 year-old girl was a passenger in a car heading west along Correction Line when it collided with a pickup truck that was travelling south on the highway.

The driver of the car – a 17 year-old female – and a 17 year-old male passenger were both treated at the scene and released, while the deceased female was pronounced dead at the scene. The two young adult occupants of the pickup were taken to hospital as a precaution but were later released.

Police say there are stop signs for both east and westbound traffic on Correction line. No charges have been laid but police are continuing to investigate.
