Investigation continues

 The RCMP continue to investigate a fatal collision which occurred Oct 11 on Highway 1 and left two people deceased.

An SUV was traveling eastbound on Highway 1 in the left lane and collided with a car which was believed to be traveling northbound on Highway 847 and crossing Highway 1 to turn westbound. The car ended up in the ditch.

The two occupants of the car, a 71-year-old male and a 68-year-old female of Medicine Hat, were both declared deceased on scene.

The 56-year-old male driver of the SUV was not injured.  There were two female passengers in the SUV, a 53-year-old and a 15-year-old.  Both went to area hospitals with minor injuries.

Traffic was slowed to one lane of travel for several hours.  The RCMP remained on scene until approximately 11:30 p.m.  The cause of this collision remains under investigation, although there is no indication that alcohol was a factor.  Further information is not available.
