Two people are dead following an early morning accident yesterday on Highway 28.
The RCMP says preliminary investigation reveals that shortly after 6:00 a.m., on Aug. 23, there was a report of a serious motor vehicle collision involving two vehicles.
A Community Peace Officer from Bonnyville had attempted to stop a 4-door sedan for a traffic safety violation. The sedan was heading southbound on Highway 892 and failed to stop at a controlled intersection at Highway 28. A collision subsequently occurred with a pickup truck heading eastbound on Highway 28.
Two out of six occupants of the sedan have died as a result of injuries sustained in this collision; a 25-year-old female and a 19-year-old male, both from the Elizabeth Métis Settlement. The four other occupants of the sedan were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The two occupants of the pickup truck were assessed for minor injuries by Emergency Medical Services on scene.
The Cold Lake RCMP are looking to identify an adult male that assisted at the scene of this collision. He was driving a service truck and reportedly wearing an Esso mobile jacket. Police would like to speak with him in relation to this incident.
The Cold Lake RCMP investigation is on-going. If anyone has any information on this collision they are asked to contact Cold Lake RCMP at 780-594-3301.
