A single vehicle crash about an hour southwest of Edmonton has left an eight-year-old girl dead.
It happened around 8 o’clock Saturday night, when a ford pick-up was travelling on Highway 39 at Range Road 52, and it lost control and rolled into a guard rail. Emergency services arrived on scene to find the child had died as a result of the collision.
The driver, a woman, sustained serious injuries and was transported to an Edmonton hospital.
Thorsby/Breton RCMP say at this time it is not known if alcohol or weather were contributing factors in the crash.
Names have not been released. (dac)
