A person has died after a crash in Sturgeon County.

On Wednesday (Dec.22) at around 1:30 p.m., the RCMP was called to a head-on collision on Highway 28 at Range Road 223, west of Redwater.

Officers blocked off the highway for several hours while emergency workers tried to rescue the people in the vehicles. Police say one of the vehicles was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived.

The driver of one of the vehicles was killed — police say three occupants in the other vehicle only suffered minor injuries.

While the collision is still under investigation, police stated poor road conditions, including blowing snow, may have been a factor in the incident.
