NAMPA, A.B. – One child is dead and three other children injured after a collision on Highway 2 Friday night near Nampa.
The child was ejected from a vehicle after a collision at 5:55 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 2 and Township Rd. 810.
A pick-up truck was travelling westbound on Township Rd. 810 in an area of fog. The RCMP believe the pick-up failed to stop at a stop sign, resulting in the vehicle colliding with a loaded tractor trailer. A 34 year-old female, and three female children under the age of seven were transported to hospital to receive medical attention.
The 34 year-old female is in serious condition. The three children under the age of seven do not appear to have any life threatening injuries.
The driver of the semi tractor has no physical injuries.
The Peace Regional RCMP continue to investigate this collision in conjunction with an RCMP Collision Analyst to determine if charges are warranted. Fog and the stop sign appear to have played roles in this collision.
Families of the involved parties have been notified and their identities are not being released.
