Two people died following a two-vehicle motor collision that occurred on Highway 3/93 near Jaffray on Monday afternoon.
The incident involved a westbound 2014 Toyota Matrix that drifted out of the single lane of westbound travel into the path of a eastbound 2007 Dodge Dakota pickup truck.
The driver of the Dodge truck attempted to avoid the collision by pulling over to the shoulder of the highway, but a head-on collision still occurred. The Dodge driver, a 77 year old man, suffered serious, but non life-threatening injuries.
He was transported to Calgary by STARS air ambulance to receive treatment for his injuries.
Highway 3/93 remains closed at this time, while police and the B.C. Coroners Service investigate.
Traffic is being re-routed on a secondary roadway.
