A man is dead af­ter two pick­ups col­lided in snowy con­di­tions on High­way 2 near Slave Lake on Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

Slake Lake RCMP said a truck head­ing west col­lided with an east­bound truck on High­way 2 around 6 a.m., with both ve­hi­cles end­ing up in op­po­site ditches on the side of the high­way, 35 km east of the town, which is about 257 km northwest of Ed­mon­ton.

A 53-year-old driver from one of the trucks was pro­nounced dead at the scene, while the other male driver was taken to hospi­tal and treated for mi­nor in­juries.

Slave Lake RCMP were in­ves­ti­gat­ing the crash.

Driv­ers were be­ing asked to slow down be­cause of poor vis­i­bil­ity and heavy snow on the high­way.
