This evening (Dec. 7) at 7:45 p.m., Jasper RCMP re­sponded to a com­plaint of a se­ri­ous, head-on col­li­sion on High­way 16 at Tal­bot Lake.

The col­li­sion in­volved a semi truck and an SUV. The male driver of the semi truck has been trans­ported to hospi­tal via ground am­bu­lance and the driver and pas­sen­ger of the SUV were de­ceased on scene.

Traf­fic was di­verted on High­way 16 at Jasper town­site head­ing east, and west­bound traf­fic is di­verted at High­way 40. Cur­rently an RCMP Col­li­sion An­a­lyst has at­tended the col­li­sion scene and it was an­tic­i­pated that the road would be im­pass­able for ap­prox­i­mately 6 hours.

All pos­si­ble con­tribut­ing fac­tors to the cause of this col­li­sion re­main un­der investigation. There is no fur­ther in­for­ma­tion avail­able about the oc­cu­pants of the SUV at this time.
