Canmore RCMP knew something was wrong early Sunday morning, but they didn’t have time to do anything about it.
The Mounties got a call around 2:30 a.m., that a vehicle was heading the wrong way on Highway 1, but it struck another vehicle before they could stop it.
Officers arrived at the scene in Lac Des Arcs to find a car and truck had collided head-on, in the eastbound lanes.
There was nothing emergency crews could do for the driver of the truck, along with a passenger in the car, who were both found dead at the scene.
The driver of the car was still alive, but in critical condition.
Investigators say they’re looking into all possible contributing factors, adding they will not be releasing names. (td)
