On Friday, June 9 at 7:36 PM, Beiseker RCMP, Alberta Sheriffs, Carbon Fire, Linden Fire Departments and EMS were dispatched to a collision on Highway 21, approx- imately 2 kilometres north of the Highway 9 intersection.
Initial reports are that extreme weather, including heavy hail and rain was occurring at the time of the collision between a southbound vehicle with 3 occupants and a northbound SUV with 1 occupant.
Upon arrival, it was determined that STARS air ambulance was required for one of the patients and an alterna-
tive landing zone was set up due to inclement weather in the area of the collision.
Tragically, a 16-year-old female passenger was pronounced deceased on scene. A 67-year-old female was transported to the STARS landing zone and was then airlifted to a Calgary area hospital with critical potentially life-threatening condition. A 43-year-old female was transported by ground ambulance to a Calgary area hospital in serious non-life threatening condition.
The lone 58-year-old female driver of the Northbound SUV was transported to Three Hills hospital in non-life threatening condition.
